Austin, TX, September 11, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Email Services firm MxToolBox, Inc. announced today the launch of FlexBox
™, a Patent Pending email technology platform that eliminates the barriers to migrating from an in-house email server to a Managed (aka Hosted) Email Service. FlexBox™ is the first managed email service that runs in parallel with an existing email server, allowing Email Administrators to migrate one, some or all users to a hosted email solution at their own pace without taking them off of their existing server. In contrast, migration to a traditional managed email service requires IT Managers to move all of their users to the new service all at once, without any safety net or easy fall back to the old server.
Because traditional Managed Email Services require all users to be moved off of the in-house email server at the same time, IT Managers must accept a substantial amount of Technical, Financial and Personal Risk to evaluate the potential benefits of having an outsourced email solution. If the chosen Managed Solution does not work, the IT Team must move all users back to the old server and deal with the unpleasant task of reconciling data from the managed mailbox with the old mailbox. The money and time invested in the migration is wasted and the IT Manager’s credibility is tarnished.
“Migration to a traditional managed email service requires an email administrator to take an incredible leap of faith, because they have to move every user off of the in-house server and onto the managed service all at once. It is a monumental task and it is very difficult to go back to the in-house server if the managed service doesn’t work,” explains MxToolBox Founding CEO Eric Rachal.
Rachal continues, “With FlexBox™, everything is different. IT Managers can test drive a managed solution with one, some, or all users without risking anything. If the service works for them, they can bring over the rest of their users at their own pace. If it doesn’t work, no problem, every user still has an up-to-date mailbox on the in-house server. FlexBox™ even takes it one step further—for the first time ever, IT Managers can have some user mailboxes on an in-house server and other mailboxes hosted by a managed service provider.”
FlexBox™ is an on-demand email services platform built on patent pending technology. ‘Simultaneous Synchronous Split Domain Email Routing with Conflict Resolution’ is the one-of-a-kind technology that makes it possible for a single email recipient address to exist on more than one email server at the same time. FlexBox™ Junk Mail is a spam and virus filtering service for email servers. FlexBox™ Emergency Mail is an always on, always up to date backup email box. FlexBox™ Managed Mail is a hosted email service and FlexBox™ Managed Mail
Pro is a hosted email and collaboration service with shared synchronized contacts and calendars. Mobile Synchronization and Email Archiving round out the FlexBox product mix. IT Managers can customize the FlexBox™ service suite on a per user basis to meet their exact needs. The services are available to organizations throughout North America.
