Designed for the medium-sized office and educational environments, Avirt Mail Server is a store-and-forward mail server that fetches electronic mail from a larger Internet server and then redistributes the mail to an unlimited number of users. Avirt Mail Server is similar to the SOHO-targeted Avirt Rover mail server, but unlike its companion, Avirt Mail Server is designed to support more than five users.
The server can connect to other mail servers via any Internet connection (modem, ISDN, frame relay, leased line, network connection, etc.) and grabs mail at predefined intervals for local storage. You can maintain the connection as long as you need, or just long enough to grab the mail. The local users can then access their mail at their convenience.
