This product is intended to be used with an office local area network and is developed according to client-server technology. MAPILab Groupware Server provides shared real-time access to shared storage and folders stored on the server, as well as means for managing access rights. The server can be controlled from any computer with the help of a special program. Administrator status can be given to one or several users - as any user can cope with the task of administrating the server. From a cliental point of view, folders on MAPILab Groupware Server look and behave exactly the same as folders on Microsoft Exchange Server: the moment someone creates a new note in the folder, you will see it at your place. In the same way that Microsoft Outlook works with Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft Outlook works with MAPILab Groupware Server via the MAPI protocol. It allows clients to work together in real time, but imposes certain requirements concerning the reliability, performance and bandwidth of communication facilities.
