Atmail 6.1.3 was announced just a few hours ago. While you might wonder why we report so much about every release of Atmail. The reason is simple, Atmail is one of the most innovative email solutions on the market. Contrary to their larger competitors such as Exchange and Zimbra, Atmail a big bloatware that requires 4GB or RAM to handle 20 users. That is one of the main reason’s why I like Atmail.
As Atmail keeps adding new features, I really hope that they won’t fall in the bloatware-trap and add leave the light and minimalistic path they’re currently on.
This big update in this release is added support for LDAP and Active Directory, which is a big deal. In particular if they are starting to go after the larger SMBs and enterprises. Most companies already have either an LDAP server (if they’re a Unix/Linux shop) or an Active Directory (if they’re a Windows shop). Being able to just plug Atmail directly into it reduces the administrative burden a tremendous amount.
