WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, October 26, 1999 -- CE Software, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of CE Software Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ SC Symbol: CESH), today announced the release of QuickMail Pro 2.0 for Windows, a major upgrade of its easy-to-use Internet and personal E-mail client. This QuickMail Office 2.0 client, now available for both Windows and Macintosh, features an all-new interface, home and office E-mail account handling in one window, advanced contact management features, hierarchical file folders and dozens of other improvements. Free 30-day demos of QuickMail Pro 2.0 for Windows and Macintosh are available at: http://www.cesoft.com/demo.html.

"With capabilities for multi-user and multi-profile configurations, QuickMail Pro 2.0 for Windows is brimming with new options that we've all come to expect from QuickMail Pro," said Emory Bestenlehner, preview tester and tech support administrator for Westcoast Performance Products USA. "This new version has the potential to be a definite front-end contender."

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

  • A completely revised interface featuring a new "mail browser" window.
  • Send and receive E-mail from more than one account using a single interface.
  • A new address book that doubles as a contact manager.
  • Hierarchical or "nested" folders for organizing stored messages more efficiently.
  • A streamlined interface for creating MailManager rules and searching for filed mail.
  • Improved enclosure handling procedures, including double-click launching and compression.
  • Plus many more new features.

"QuickMail Pro is a good alternative for users who want a more professional E-mail product than what is typically provided to them in free E-mail software," said John S. Kirk, president of CE Software, Inc. "QuickMail has unique features - like multiple accounts managed in one central location, individual recipient receipts and double-click enclosure launching - not found in other E-mail packages being offered today."
