Software Furthers Development of QuickMail - Three New Operating Systems
Business e-mail software in development for Mac OS X, Windows 2000 and Windows ME
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, July
26, 2001 - CE Software, Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: CESW), today announced the upcoming
release of an OS X version of QuickMail, its easy-to-use Internet and interoffice
e-mail system which includes server software for Macintosh and client software for
both Windows and Macintosh. This new version of QuickMail will be carbonized for
compatibility with Macintosh OS X.
"We recently regained
full control of all QuickMail source code from a nonfunctional joint development
partnership," said John S. Kirk, President of CE Software, Inc. "Development
is well under way and includes a new version which will be formally announced very
soon. The primary focus of our first development effort will be to upgrade QuickMail
for Mac OS X, Windows 2000 and Windows ME so that it spans all relevant operating
systems in Macintosh and Windows environments."
Developing a QuickMail carbonized
for OS X allows the program to work with the latest Mac OS, while continuing to serve
Mac 8.6 and Mac OS 9. Both the Macintosh and Windows versions of QuickMail are being
designed to further improve ease-of-use, speed and reliability. In addition, several
enhancements and minor fixes will be included to advance the productÝs capabilities.
A public beta planned for later this summer will provide a cross-platform, cost-effective,
feature-rich and easy to use e-mail solution for both Windows and Macintosh users.

release of the new version. 5-user packs of QuickMail Office are priced at $345.95
