NetMail features

NetMail is an email system for network workstations, consisting of a mail/SMS gateway and a Windows client. Alternatively conventional POP3/SMTP clients or a webmail interface can be used. The software can also be combined with CapiFax and CapiCall to form a Unified Messaging System (UMS).

LANIn your office
In a local-area network, NetMail provides groupware functions like email, SMS, diary, pinboard and instant messaging. You can read and write your emails on any workstation using the NetMail client software for Windows, and emails can be stored and searched in shared and private archives for later access.
GSM, SMSMobile email
Even while you are out and about, you still have access to the emails arriving at your office. Use your smartphone to read and write emails using POP3/SMTP or a web browser. Or use the mobile NetMail client to dial your server via ISDN or TCP/IP: With its compressed protocol, transfer volume is minimized.
Fax/Speech/MailUnified messaging
Together with the CapiFax and CapiCall software NetMail can form a complete Unified Messaging System (UMS) so that voice messages or faxes can be forwarded as emails, or to send emails to any fax number. Using a GSM modem with a serial port even mail to SMS and SMS to mail is possible.
SoftwareAll you need

NetMail components

NetMail consists of two main components - the client software which can be used in a LAN or also externally e.g. via GSM to read and write emails, and the gateway software running on a PC in your office. The LAN clients are not installed separately on each workstation but loaded over the network neighbourhood (autosync.exe) from the NetMail folder.

SMTP clients

The gateway software consists of four programs. The mailer typically fetches all emails from a catch-all POP3 account at your Internet provider and sends your emails using SMTP. The mail router places the fetched mails into personal mailboxes, using the To/Cc/Bcc header lines. The SMS module allows sending and receiving SMS messages. The transfer module is only required on the server if mobile NetMail clients are used.

The NetMail client software is launched from a shared network drive and thus do not need a separate installation on each workstation. You can also use POP3/SMTP-based programs like Outlook, Thunderbird or smart phones in parallel.

For using SMTP/POP3 clients, enable the SMTP/POP3 ports in the server configuration.

- Launch the SETUP program, select English as language, and install NetMail e.g. to c:\Shamrock\NetMail.
- For LAN clients, the gateway's hard disk (typically C:) must be accessible as a network share (read+write).
- Launch the gateway configuration from the Windows start menu (Programs/NetMail).
- Enter your own main domain, e.g., and (if applicable) additional domains.
- Create at least one user in the configuration program (username = address part before @).

In the gateway PC, at least mailer.exe (Mailer) and gateway.exe (Mail router) must run all the time. System tray of gateway PC:
R=mail router (gateway.exe), M=mailer (mailer.exe)
