Announcing the Release Candidate of the next SmarterMail!

Feel free to check out the SmarterMail BETA thread to review all of the BETA releases we've distributed since December. We also have three blog posts that detail the benefits the next SmarterMail offers to system administrators, domain administrators, and end users.

As this is a release candidate, it IS possible to use in a production environment. However, there have been so many changes and new features added to this version of SmarterMail that it is not possible to downgrade once it's installed. As a result, we strongly recommend you keep that in mind if you choose to install it for production. 

Release Candidates that are installed in a production environment, using an existing license covered under Maintenance and Support will receive free upgrades and free technical support, just like any existing license. (Of course, you can still participate in the BETA community and report bugs, ask questions, etc.) 

We are very near the final, public release of the next SmarterMail. Thanks to everyone who helped us during the BETA. Our combined effort will make this release of SmarterMail the best, and biggest, ever.
