Banyan Systems Inc has also unveiled BeyondMail 2.0 for Intelligent Messaging III. The company acquired Beyond Inc, the developer of the rules-based BeyondMail electronic mail application, last February. Intelligent Messaging’s shared message database has been integrated with BeyondMail 2.0, enabling users to centralise configuration of the two systems, and enabling them to access their mail from anywhere on the network regardless of the front end being used. The shared message database also increases security by incorporating the security features of Intelligent Messaging, says Banyan. On the workflow front, the release includes an MS-DOS- or Windows-based Serial Routing Form which enables the originator of a message to track its progress (when received, when completed) as well as any exception reports, if necessary. The offering also includes Burlington, Massachusetts company Watermark Software Inc’s Explorer Edition, an Object Linking & Embedding-based imaging software package. BeyondMail 2.0 will be available in mid 1994 in two versions: the Standard Edition for DOS/Windows (which does not include the workflow option) will list from $700 for 10-user versions to $4,500 for 100 users; the Professional Edition for DOS/Windows for 10 users will list for $1,000, rising to $8,500 for the 100-user version. Banyan says the package will come with complete forward and backward compatibility with BeyondMail 1.0 for Vines and Enterprise Network Services, and migration tools. And BeyondMail 2.0 functionality will be provided to Media Access Control and Unix clients later this year, it says.
