IceWarp Email Server is Fully Compatible with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012

Messaging & collaboration provider's long cooperation with Microsoft guarantees seamless deployment on these new platforms

(PresseBox) (Springfield, VA, ) IceWarp is fully compatible with Windows 8 operating system, as well as Windows Server 2012, the messaging and collaborations solutions provider announced today. The company's development team completed a series of rigorous tests proving that its award-winning messaging server can be seamlessly deployed on these platforms.

"Although we compete with Microsoft Exchange in the messaging space, full compatibility with the Microsoft environment is the key element of our development strategy," said Ladislav Goc, IceWarp President. "We have been licensing key patents and protocols from the Redmond giant since 2009. That allowed us to develop our own solutions that work with MS Exchange ActiveSync more effectively than Exchange itself."

This option adds extra convenience for the use with mobile devices.

"If you have iPhone, iPad, Android phone or android tablet you can set full synchronization of your mobile device in the same way as you would do with Exchange server," explains Mr. Goc. "When specifying account for your mobile device - select account type Exchange. Your IceWarp server then will do the rest of the job and will automatically set your mobile device and your IceWarp server. It has never been never so easy before- just enter your email and password. Even your grandma can do it!"

A rare exception in the messaging space, IceWarp's architecture is based on universal standards, doesn't depend on any client and supports all mobile devices currently on the market.

"Coupled with ActiveSync, this approach allows IceWarp Server to synchronize key data - emails, contacts, calendars and tasks - across multiple platforms and gadgets," says Mr. Goc. "These include the latest Microsoft Surface tablet, as well as devices from Apple, Nokia, and other vendors."

IceWarp Server 10.4.4 provides full experience for Windows 8 users, including:

- IceWarp WebClient compatibility with Internet Explorer 10
- IceWarp Desktop Client compatibility with Windows 8
- Windows 8 Mail synchronizes Emails, People and Calendars against IceWarp Server
