Question

GMS Webmail is a complete standalone mail solution, it contains everything you need to send and receive email messages. It also includes many other advanced facilities perhaps not found in other mail clients.

Given this why would I want to use GMS Mail in conjunction with GMS Webmail?

Answer

There are a number of reasons why you might want to run both GMS Webmail and GMS Mail in conjunction with each other.

  • gives your users a choice as to which mail client they use, either GMS Webmail or a traditional mail client.
  • using a traditional mail client allows users to work "off-line". If you use GMS Webmail solely then a connection to the server is always required in order to read or write email messages.
  • users may wish to use a traditional mail client while in the office and use GMS Webmail while on the road or from home. GMS Webmail will use and maintain exactly the same message store as they see from their traditional mail client.
