Z1 SecureMail Messenger

Z1 SecureMail Messenger is a server-based software solution for confidential email exchange. It enables secure communication to everyone at every place. It acts as an SMTP proxy and is completely transparent for the sender. It either delivers the message as an encrypted PDF document or stores the message on the server and provides comfortable access via Web frontend. The recpient can read the secured message with familiar software (Web browser, PDF reader). No PKI technology or certificates are required. Evaluation packages for Debian and Solaris are available for download.

    Release Notes: This release comes with a new PDF module with improved support for HTML mails. Layout (CSS) and inline images will be preserved when MIME messages are converted to PDF, making it easier to provide a professional appearance. Users can now select their preferred delivery type, e.g. WebSafe or KickMail PDF. Formerly, this could only be decided by the admin. A Daily Status Email will inform the administrator about the current system state.

      Release Notes: Z1 Messenger now logs every action regarding a user account, such as when the account was created, when it was activated, and so on. The account history can be viewed online or exported as CSV or PDF report. The configuration and monitoring of the MTA (mail transfer agent) is now completely available via the Admin Webclient. Finally, the usability and look and feel of the Admin GUI was improved (with AJAX), and the compatibility with all common Web browsers was increased.

        Release Notes: This release simplifies the initial activation process for secure mailboxes. Instead of using cryptic password parts, Z1 Messenger now acts with Activation Code and Activation PIN. Since the PIN consists of ordinary numbers, it can be easily transmitted to the recipient on a secure channel like phone or fax. In addition, it is also possible to automatically transmit the PIN via SMS to the recipient. The recipient, on the other hand, only needs to enter the PIN into an activation form and is subsequently able to receive and compose confidential messages.

          Release Notes: This release provides a powerful and flexible alerting system. This means that the administrator(s) can be proactively informed due to exceptional system states. Another main issue of this release was the improvement of the usability. The account setup dialog was redesigned, and provides more useful information for the external user. In addition, the user gets an immediate response for all his actions through use of a lot of JavaScript. The Admin Web client, on the other hand, offers a new global Welcome page that directs the administrator to the most important settings.

            Release Notes: This release officially supports Debian Lenny (on both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms). The Tomcat Web application server was upgraded to version 6. The Java VM was upgraded to Java 6. The newly introduced User & Rights Management allows the access of multiple administrators with different roles and rights to the Admin Webclient. The User Webmailclient allows the integration of a custom contact page.
