CE Software, Inc. Reports the Sale of QuickMail
Outspring to Continue Development and Marketing.

West Des Moines, Iowa, January 2, 2004 -- CE SOFTWARE, INC. (OTC Symbol: CESF) announces that as of the close of business December 31, 2003, the e-mail application QuickMail was sold to Outspring Software, a new startup company in California.

Outspring Software is a new company started by Jeff Baudin of Micromat Incorporated, makers of the TechTool line of disk and system utilities (http://www.micromat.com). "I've been wanting do something in the email client/server market for sometime", said Baudin. "Since I want Micromat to remain focused on what it does best, which is disk utilities, starting a new company seemed like the most logical step. When it came time to find an existing product to acquire, QuickMail was at the top of my list. QuickMail and CE Software have a long, rich history in this market and their technology and expertise will certainly help put us in the forefront of this particular sector." Baudin will remain President and CEO of Micromat as he takes the reigns of Outspring.

"We are pleased to announce the sale of QuickMail to Outspring," said John S. Kirk, president of CE Software. Our QuickMail customers deserve a strong development effort to ensure that they continue to have a powerful and robust e-mail system. We will work with Outspring to provide a smooth transition. We have turned over our work-in-process on the next version of QuickMail and will continue to assist Outspring with technical support during the transition. We believe this transfer to be in the best interest of our customers and the future of QuickMail. We invite everyone to stop by our booth at Macworld San Francisco (booth 1342) January 6 through January 9 for more information."
