Hewlett-Packard unveiled OpenMail 6.0 last week at the Electronic Messaging Association show, hoping to lure customers from Microsoft, Lotus and Novell groupware with visions of improved scalability and security. In addition to security and scalability enhancements, OpenMail includes better integration with Microsoft's Outlook client; improved mail throughput with a new Parallel Query Architecture; improved legacy interoperability; easier administration; and an Internet support feature, called OpenMail Anywhere, that enables users to check mail from a browser. OpenMail 6.0 pricing starts at $60 (#37) per mailbox. It runs on HP-UX, Solaris and AIX. A Linux version is in development. www.hp.com.
