Update on Webmail, Calendar and Company Directory

We’ve fallen a few weeks behind on our next product development release, code named Neptune. Neptune is a huge project that includes faster webmail (with heavy incorporation of Ajax), Calendar (also Ajaxed) and Company Directory, which will allow email administrators to populate webmail address books from the control panel, providing email users with ‘read-only’ access to that data.
I’ll have an update soon as to exact launch dates, but as of now, we’re still shooting for November. In the meantime, if you’d like some of the gory technical details behind the stuff we’re working on, especially with regards to webmail and Ajax, check out Mike’s blog—Mike is the team lead on the project.
