Outlook 2013 (PC) and Outlook 2011 (Mac) Synchronization Options
Posted by Joe Rebis on 11 January 2013 07:02 AM

This latest release of our mail server software now includes synchronization (mail, contacts and calendars) between our web mail service, your mobile devices, and now the desktop version of Outlook 2013 (PC) and/or Outlook 2011 (Mac) - for complete end-to-end synchronization between them. Microsoft Active Synch is available for $2.00 per email address per month and supports multiple devices. Exchange Web Services for Outlook 2011 (Mac) is free. Additionally, Windows 2008's default mail client is also supported. EWA and EAS work over ports 80/443 so you don't have to mess around with SMTP servers regardless of the network you are using. This simplifies setup for people on the go. You can look forward to additional options that are either partially supported or expected early next year such as viewing the availability of other users and conference room scheduling on connected devices. When compared to the cost of MS Exchange it's an easy decision.

Introducing Railo v4
Posted by Joe Rebis on 11 January 2013 06:59 AM

We are proud to announce that our newest shared server supports Railo v4 instead of Adobe ColdFusion. Railo is a mature and speedy CFML engine which cleanly replaces the Adobe product. The latest release leaves only a handful of unsupported tags for which most developers have simply replaced with jQuery anyway. We would otherwise convert all of our servers to it if we didn't host such a large amount of legacy Adobe ColdFusion applications which may still use these old tags. One of the many unique aspects of Railo is the Railo Administrator. Each domain using Railo has it's own administrator so that you can administer DSNs, Mappings, and other application level settings such as mail, sessions and ORM. We are so pleased with Railo, it's ease of updating, and the fact it's community driven. Spend your money on yourself rather than licensing as they say. Those wishing to give it a try can contact Joe or Tegan at support@ephost.com for a 30-Day demo account. Of course, dedicated customers can install directly on their server at no charge because it's open-source. Ralio supported editions are also available directly from Railo.

Adobe ColdFusion Upgrade
Posted by Joe Rebis on 11 January 2013 06:57 AM

We are currently in the process of upgrading Adobe ColdFusion on our existing shared servers. We had planned to upgrade much earlier following the big migration earlier this year. We are currently undecided if we plan to migrate to CF 9 or CF 10 due to the large amount of legacy Adobe ColdFusion applications we are hosting for customers. In either case we'll upgrade in January. This will be out final upgrade of Adobe ColdFusion on our servers as we plan to begin using Railo ColdFusion v4, a mature and speedy open-source option, for all future servers. See the following article.

Premium MX Servers
Posted by Joe Rebis on 11 January 2013 06:55 AM

We have two private MX servers available for users who are running their own email (e.g. MS Exchange or Gmail) and need anti-spam, anti-virus and back-up email capabilities. Our servers can accept and scan your email then redirect to your email server. In the event youre email server is down the messages will be spooled on our primary and secondary servers until your email server is backup. The cost for most customers is $24.95 per domain per month which is outstanding when compared to Postini @ $5.00 per address.

Posted by Joe Rebis on 11 January 2013 06:54 AM

We have recently added a new mobile interface for our web mail service. Previously it was challenging to use web mail from a mobile device. The new interface is easy to use and fast. To login just click the "mobile" link under the normal web mail login screen from your mobile device.

EP2 Network Planned Updates
Posted by Joe Rebis on 11 January 2013 06:44 AM

In Q1 of 2013 we will be performing several needed updates to our EP2 Network (former Mallsoft Network). This includes adding a new high-capacity mail server, adding a control panel system, and updating DNS to switch out the "Instahost" domain with "EPhost". We will also be consolidating several shared systems, adding a deeper level of integration with the EP1 Network and upgrading most systems to either Microsoft Windows 2008 R2, and Microsoft SQL Server 2012. This year we started and completed a re-vamp of the entire backup system, imported DNS zones to our normal name servers and added the control panel to several new clients.
