Scalix Delivers Full-Featured Exchange Alternative for Home and Small Office Use

Sophisticated, enterprise-class email and calendaring with mobile connections now accessible for businesses big and small.

New York, NY, November 05, 2009 --( Scalix, the award-winning Linux email, group calendaring, and messaging subsidiary of Xandros, Inc., today released Scalix Starter Packs, providing affordable, full-featured email and calendaring for home and small office use. The new packages, supporting up to ten full-featured premium users and 20 standard users, provide all the benefits of Scalix Small Business Edition including group calendaring, public folders, delegation, and Microsoft Outlook support.

The Starter Packs come with the award-winning Scalix Mobile Web Client for universal cell phone and browser access. They also provide synchronization over wireless networks with a huge variety of mobile devices supporting the ActiveSync industry standard, including Apple’s iPhone, Microsoft Windows Mobile-based devices, and Symbian-based phones, such as Nokia's E- and N-Series.

“Our new Scalix Starter Packs serve an unmet demand for an affordable, small-scale alternative to Microsoft Exchange,” said Andreas Typaldos, CEO of Xandros. “It’s a sign of the times that we’re seeing a proliferation of small businesses with sophisticated big-business messaging needs. Nearly all also have the minimal level of technical know-how needed to administer Scalix servers, so this is a great opportunity for them to beef up their messaging while cutting costs. The Starter Packs also provide an easy means for thousands of our Scalix Community Edition users to upgrade to ActiveSync support.”
