Rockford Systems announces MailProxy, an innovative mail solution for
Macintosh without apermanent connection to the Internet.
You want to receive and send mail at high-speed, without useless
connections to the Internet?
You do not want to change your working habits?
Your network contains at least one Macintosh?
MailProxy is your mail solution !

RockFord Systems, a French based start-up specialized in electronic mail
solutions, announces MailProxy, the first mail server for the Macintosh
that does not require a permanent connection to the Internet. Developed to
address the specific needs of small networks from 2 to 30 computers (small
offices, schools, administration,), MailProxy is an innovative and unique
solution offering a reliable, simple, and economical mail server.

” As consultant for small companies, I often had to solve cost related
issues raised by email. Since there was no real solution for the Macintosh,
I decided to develop MailProxy, the first mail server for the Macintosh
that does not require a permanent connection to the Internet” said
Pierre-Loic Raynaud, founder of RockFord System.

MailProxy was especially developed for workgroups and SOHOs that have at
least one Macintosh and no permanent connection to the Internet. Compatible
with all mail applications (Macintosh and PC), MailProxy allows simplifying
mail exchange as well as reducing the connection frequency to the Internet.
Users no longer need to manually connect to the Internet to send and
receive mail. MailProxy handles this task automatically for all network
users. Internal network mail is directly routed to its destination, without
passing through the Internet or the Internet Service Provider. They are
secure because mail no longer leaves your private local network. External
mail is sent and received at fixed hours. MailProxy is entirely
configurable, and will automatically connect to the Internet service
provider at scheduled hours.

Users do not change their working habits. Once configured, MailProxy
handles mail by eliminating useless connections to the Internet. Users of
MailProxy can continue to use their favorite mail applications. MailProxy
is introduced at the New-York MacWorld Expo (Booth #1938), the show that
exhibits the latest in MacOS development, and which is held from July 21-23

Price and availability:
MailProxy, which you can download from, will be
available as of August 1999, at a suggested retail price of US$300
(excluding sales taxes)
