Security Flaw in Microsoft Messaging
Yet another security
flaw found in a Microsoft messaging product. Does your Boss know how
lousy Microsoft's Messaging products are?
Microsoft Can't Even Keep Its Own Servers Running
a five-day outage, Microsoft proved
once again that it can't even run its own systems without devastating
crashes seen by millions of public users worldwide. Microsoft's response
to this? "We're still learning".
Microsoft's Messaging System Down for Seven Days
Not only has Microsoft been
struggling to restore full service, but the company also shut down MSN
Messenger as it restarted the network of servers that handle messaging
traffic. That "reboot"
failed to immediately fix the problem.
The NAS Recommends Microsoft Be Punished for Lax
released by The US National Academy of Sciences (NAS) is calling on the
US Government to draft laws that would punish software firms that do not
do enough to make their products secure.
Another serious security flaw found in Exchange
A security flaw has been
found in the Outlook Web Access module in Microsoft's Exchange 5.5 email
system. This flaw could allow
unauthorized access to user's mailboxes, the company warned late Thursday.
Is Exchange the leader? You decide.
We were recently asked what
we thought GroupWise's market share was and if we thought the product
was viable in the future. If you're asked these questions by management,

Even Microsoft Doesn't Think Exchange Upgrades
On Microsoft's Top Support
Issues for Exchange 2000, # 7 is How to Roll Back from a Failed Upgrade
to Exchange 2000. Now there's a vote of confidence for you! Microsoft
recently removed this link so we can't show everyone, but you can find
out all the problems
with Exchange on their web site.
Exchange 2000: Proof of DOJ's Point?
News describes why Exchange 2000 is so tied to Win2K that its its
a huge cost and time drain to roll out, stating: "Rolling
out Exchange 2000 requires detailed configurations of Windows 2000 Active
Directory and Internet Information Server, which is used to perform protocol
Novell's Comments on GroupWise vs. Exchange
See what Novell's
comments are regarding GroupWise vs. Exchange. Read the lies Microsoft
is telling about GroupWise, and other competitive information.
Gartner Group says to stop using IIS
Gartner Group has released
its recommendation that
companies should switch from using Microsoft's Web Server software called
IIS to something more secure, due to all the security holes in the current
GroupWise Security Patch Released
Novell has released a security
patch that effects GroupWise servers running v5.5EP (SP2 and SP3) and
v6.0. While Novell is keeping the nature of the security patch quiet until
its customers have had a chance to upgrade, DWS does recommend installing
this very small patch. You can download the patch from support.novell.com/padlock
or contact us at [email protected]
for a copy.
Look at the real cost of switching to Exchange
Is it any surprise that Microsoft
is bleeding your IS&T budget dry? Just look at how
expensive it is to switch to Exchange. Then you can start to figure
in the salary costs of the extra Admins to run the Exchange system, and
very soon you wind up in the poor house.
Next time Management wants to switch to Exchange, hit them where it hurts
- the bottom line!
WebClipping Application released for GroupWise
This free extension to WebAccess
allows wireless Palm OS devices (Pilots, Handspring, etc.) to get a graphical,
interface into your live GroupWise system. You can
download this enhancement from Novell's
download site. Look for the link entitled GroupWise 6 Wireless
Another bug in Microsoft's email architecture
If you're getting pressure to move to Exchange, this article
from InfoWorld may help persuade your Management that Microsoft doesn't
now much about email. The gist of the article is that the SMTP component
inside of Windows 2000 has a huge security hole that allows SPAMmers to
exploit it. This SMTP feature is often used in Exchange sites for routing
email. Whether it's security holes or viruses, Microsoft email products
like Exchange keep falling short time and time again.
Novell fights back against Microsoft
For those of you that haven't
read it, Novell has published a response to Microsoft's recent statements
about GroupWise. No one is surprised that Microsoft has going overboard
on stretching the truth when it compares the two products, and it shows
how scared Microsoft is about GroupWise.
Now you can read the truth on Novell's
web site. So the next time your Management is interested in switching
to Exchange, show them this article, and remind them that the grass is
definitely not greener on the other side!
GroupWise is Dead - are you kidding?
Rumors of GroupWise's
Demise are greatly exaggerated. Read the article
that discusses the email hoax that had a few people fooled. I wonder
it came out of Microsoft's marketing department. I wouldn't be surprised.
