MICROSOFT, COLLABRE TO DEVELOP TOUCHDOWN BASED ELECTRONIC MAIL

By CBR Staff Writer

Microsoft Corp and Collabra Software Inc have teamed up to develop and market new electronic mail application software based on Microsoft’s planned Touchdown family of server applications. The first product, Collabra Share, is scheduled to ship in July. Collabra Share adds electronic fora to a corporate network’s electronic mail. All of the information a workgroup uses is integrated and organised in the forum. Any member of the workgroup can use Collabra Share or electronic mail to contribute information to a forum, respond to the contributions of others and find information quickly using Collabra Share’s full-text retrieval capabilities. Microsoft and Collabra will work together to extend Collabra’s agent technology to link Collabra Share’s fora with future products that fall under Microsoft’s Information Exchange banner, and to replicate Collabra Share fora over Microsoft’s messaging network using Collabra’s store-and-forward replication technology. The companies will also work together to integrate future versions of Collabra Share with the messaging network’s back-end services. Collabra will also become a member of Microsoft’s recently announced Messaging Management Council, along with AT&T Corp, MCI Communications Corp and others. The Workgroup Edition of the new software will cost $70 per user for a 10-user licence. The Enterprise Extension is $900 per server for an unlimited number of users.
