L-Soft Releases High Deliverability Mailer

Solution Built on StrongMail Technology Enhances Company's LISTSERV® Product Line

Bethesda, MD (April 10, 2006) – L-Soft, the company behind LISTSERV®, the original email list management software that launched the industry in 1986, announced today the availability of HDMail, a powerful mail server software product designed to combine the time-tested power and performance of LISTSERV with the speed and deliverability advantages of StrongMail's mail server technology.

"Many businesses outsource their email delivery because of the complexity and critical importance of deliverability. Although outsourcing is indisputably more expensive, it delegates the hassle of deliverability optimization to professionals. With HDMail's live updates, you can download best practice rules from L-Soft to your in-house appliance and get the best of both worlds," said Eric Thomas, L-Soft Founder and CEO. "We are committed to working with StrongMail to make HDMail the best mail server on the market, bar none."

L-Soft provides HDMail software licenses and appliances, which include hardware and software components in a turnkey solution. The new HDMail product is optimized to work with L-Soft's LISTSERV family of products and is being sold in conjunction with that product line. HDMail is also available for customers who use L-Soft's email list hosting services.

"L-Soft's decision to offer StrongMail MTA is indicative of where the market is going" said Sam Cece, CEO of StrongMail Systems. "A new breed of technology and services is required for email delivery, and businesses will be forced to decide whether to build or buy. The winners will be the ones that invest in their core business, and leave their email infrastructure needs to StrongMail."
