Exabytes - Discontinue of Neomail Support for Linux Hosting

Date : 1 Jan 2007

*** This is an additional announcement that has been sent out to all the users who subscribed to our Linux hosting services ( reseller and share hosting ) on 22 Dec 2006 via email.

Please be informed that with effective of 1st Jan 2007, Neomail for Linux hosting is no longer supported.

The current Exim mail version we use is running on .mbox. format where the email messages of all users under the same domain are stored in one single file. We will upgrade Exim to an enhanced version which support .maildir format. With this new .maildir. Exim version, email messages will be stored in separate inbox file for every user and this will fix the problem where mailbox get locked when downloading emails via POP3 which some of our users might have experienced.

With this Exim mail version upgrade; Neomail will no longer be supported as part of the webmail option. This is due to Neomail does not support running on Exim .maildir. format. However, Horde and SquirrelMail is still available as part of the webmail option in our Linux hosting.

We will be running the upgrade by batch mode across our Linux hosting servers in US and Malaysia. Wish you a Happy and Wonderful 2007!

If you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank You!
