Intermedia Business Internet Introduces
Leading Edge E-mail Service


Beltsville, MD (1/25/99) - Intermedia Communications (NASDAQ: ICIX) announced today the release of Intermedia Messenger Mail, a fully integrated, scaleable e-mail service that allows organizations of any size to enjoy the benefits of a high-performance e-mail system. Intermedia Messenger Mail is the first tool in a product suite of messaging applications that will also include Fax and Voice application services.

Available through Intermedia Business Internet (formerly DIGEX Business Internet Solutions), Intermedia Messenger Mail provides a powerful and cost-effective alternative to typical in-house e-mail messaging systems, which often require a significant capital investment and dedicated system management staff. Intermedia Messenger Mail eliminates the need for such an investment by offering a complete, turnkey e-mail infrastructure in one convenient service. As important, Intermedia Messenger Mail allows companies to scale this service to meet their specific volume needs. Because Messenger Mail is an "on-demand" infrastructure that lets customers "grow as they go," companies can order as many or as few mailboxes as they need at the time.

Other benefits of Intermedia Messenger Mail include:

  • Provision for user/system specific domain names and e-mail addresses
  • Web-based account administration
  • Quicker deployment and expansion of e-mail service
  • No obsolescence risk
  • No upgrade or migration issues
  • Direct access to customer support resources and technical expertise
  • Business Class features such as user created and managed distribution lists, non-delivery notification; vacation messages and mail forwarding
  • 5MB of storage per address, with messages relayed up to 50MB
  • Support for leading e-mail clients including Eudora, Netscape Mail, Outlook and Outlook Express, Pegasus, and Claris E-mail

Intermedia Messenger Mail's web-based account administration functions provide company administrators with unparalleled flexibility in managing their Messenger Mail account. This includes the ability to add, delete, or change users; change passwords; create and manage distribution lists; modify user settings; and view key statistics such as disk space usage per mailbox or bandwidth consumption by mailing list.

According to Nancy Watters, senior director, IP Product Management, "With Intermedia Messenger Mail, we provide our customers the look and functionality of a dedicated e-mail system at significant savings over managing an e-mail infrastructure in-house. In addition, Messenger Mail delivers outstanding flexibility in both its features and with its Web-based account administration, all backed by the expertise and support of Intermedia Business Internet."

Intermedia Business Internet was the first national Internet Carrier to earn the Cisco Powered NetworkTM Designation. Intermedia Business Internet offers a comprehensive range of Internet products and services, including high-speed, dedicated Business connectivity and value-added application solutions.
