Support from OS Office is nothing short of amazing.
Finding companies that stand behind their products these days can be challenging, but the staff at OS Office proves they still exist.
I continue to be stunned by their response times and outstanding service.

Strongbolt 2 upgrade released

The new version features an entirely new look. OSPanel is crisp, clean and brings the server administration interface into the next generation, click here for a preview

The new version also brings a new webmail application. Roundcube webmail is more than a webmail system, it has the feel of a local application. It is browser-based, multilingual IMAP client. It has all of the functionality you expect from an email client, including MIME support, address books, folder manipulation, message filtering, searching and a spell checker. The backend database (sqlite) is provides a simple and easy way to store your preferences, address book and other settings. 

The user interface has "Drag and Drop" cabailities for moving messages to different folders,automatically refreshes when a message is removed and generally the application feels very fast. At last, a webmail client that feels like a local client! The application has been adapted for usage on BlueQuartz systems, and is available form the usual http://www.mydomain.com/webmail url for all sites on the server appliance.

After much demand, PHP 5 has now replaced PHP 4. Within the many new features and enhancements are exception handling,  standard PHP Library (SPL), reflection, better support for XML and several enhancements to the object oriented features of the language. PHP 5 also has a sizable list of new functions, please visit php.net for a full list.

Another feature that is getting people excited is the new kernels capabilities. Support for new devices (USB and PCI) mean that the RaQ appliance can finally become the adaptable, portable and flexible SME server that it has also had the potential to be. There are many features in BlueQuartz that are useful for the office, whether you need a standalone email gateway, a web server for testing or a print server firewall; SB2 opens up the capabilities of your favorite blue appliance. See the Firebolt screen-shots for more information on our firewall and gateway capabilities coming.
