WEST DES MOINES, IA, April 15, 1999 -- CE Software, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of CE Software Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ SC Symbol: CESH), today announced QuickMail Office 2.0, a major upgrade for its easy-to-use Internet and interoffice E-mail system for mid-sized businesses.

QuickMail Office 2.0 will be available in June. A public beta testing program begins today.

Known for its unique "all-in-one-box" approach to business E-mail, QuickMail Office 2.0 includes updated QuickMail Pro client software for Macintosh and Windows as well as an all-new version of the QuickMail Pro Server for Macintosh.

QuickMail Pro 2.0 client software features dozens of improvements designed to make QuickMail easier to use and more powerful than ever:

- Hierarchical or "nested" folders for organizing stored messages more efficiently.
- New automated procedures for handling return receipts to reduce inbox clutter.

- Improved enclosure handling procedures, including double-click launching and compression.
- Access to Internet and proprietary directories with built-in directory services.
- Gather messages from multiple accounts into a single inbox.
- Plus many more new features.

In addition, QuickMail Office 2.0 also includes expanded Macintosh server capabilities such as:
- Unsend a message by canceling its delivery with the server.
- Schedule a message for delivery at a specified time and date.
- Built-in directory server provides the whole office with up-to-date E-mail addresses and contact information.
- Automatic, server-based storage and distribution of messages posted to a shared electronic bulletin board.
- Server notifies clients when to check messages even when QuickMail Pro clients are not running.
- Anti-spam and anti-relay mechanisms cut down on nuisance E-mail.
- Plus speed enhancements and several additional server enhancements.

"QuickMail's features go above and beyond the functionality typically expected from an E-mail system," said Christian F. Gurney, president and CEO of CE Software. "Customer feedback and an understanding of what business E-mail users want has helped us update QuickMail Office and QuickMail Pro to be even more functional and convenient for users. Version 2.0 is a must-have upgrade for QuickMail users and a great alternative for anyone who wants a truly easy-to-use E-mail solution."
