easy-to-use. Some of our customers however use primarily webmail client

those people. It gives them the functionality of an email program
through their browser. The message list and the seprate messages are
viewed on one screen. Multiple settings can be done for the filtering
and processing of messages.” says Host Color’s senior developer Stoyan

cycle we will have a service that matches the most versatile hosting
offerings on the market. We will however do this in our way – we want
