IMACINATION SOFTWARE RELEASES LASSO EMAIL TOOL
New Lasso developer tool, Inbox!, provides connectivity between Web servers
and POP email accounts.
March 20, 2000 — Imacination Software today released Inbox! for Lasso, an
easy to use plug-in for Blue World Lasso Web Data Engine that enables
developers to access any POP3 email account on any server.
Using Inbox! for Lasso, developers can create Web based client interfaces
to email accounts, or archive email lists to any database Lasso connects
with, such as FileMaker Pro, 4D, Microsoft Access, and SQL Server.
The plug-in is cross platform, multi-threaded and works with Lasso Web Data
Engine 3.6 allowing simultaneous access and archiving of multiple email
“We are very enthusiastic about the release of Inbox!”, says Allon
Bendavid,president of Imacination Software. “Developer’s will now be able
to create broader Web applications integrating both email and datasources.
This plug-in is definitely a ‘Must Have!'”
“Inbox! is a fantastic addition to every Lasso developer’s tool chest,
expanding Lasso connectivity from database to email” says Bill Doerrfeld,
president and CEO of Blue World Communications, Inc.. Erik Thauvin, product
development manager for the Lasso Web Data Engine adds, “Performance is
outstanding. Inbox! addresses a common request of developers and
demonstrates the power of third party extensibility in Lasso.”
Common usages for Inbox! are retrieving email from a listserver email
account and archiving it to a database enabling users of a Web site to
search online through previous email correspondence. Traditionally, this
task was done through proprietary tools that were platform specific and
difficult to implement.

Inbox! for Lasso is available immediately for download and purchase at $99
online at http://www.imacination.com. A limited functionality demonstration
