Dallas, TX - May 1, 2001 - Bynari Inc. announced today the availability of a new line of messaging and collaboration products, called Insight, and revealed a major technological breakthrough for Linux desktops. With their new Insight products, Bynari believes that Linux and UNIX desktops in the enterprise will now be able to play in the same game with other popular messaging products such as Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes.

For interoperability with Outlook, earlier versions of Bynari's Linux-based messaging and collaboration client application depended on access to Windows messaging components via a Windows NT Server proxy. The new Insight client interoperates directly with Outlook without requiring a proxy. This capability, available only from Bynari, is unique in the industry.

Bynari's primary target market for Insight is "Fortune 1000" companies which have a population of Linux or UNIX-based technical/engineering employees who need to interact with their Windows PC counterparts who use Outlook with Exchange server. With Insight, a single UNIX or Linux user can now install Bynari's client software and immediately join the enterprise, without requiring unique support from the Exchange server.

"This breakthrough opens up a world of new opportunities for integrating the Linux and UNIX desktop user community into the Windows-centric enterprise," said Mike O'Dell, Bynari's CEO. "Insight provides the capability to simply and cost effectively upgrade a company's Linux and UNIX users with an easy to use, integrated application that interoperates with Outlook and provides Internet standards-based e-mail, IMAP shared files and folders, LDAP global address books, scheduling and calendar management functions."

Bynari also said it would begin seeking alliances with the developers of KDE and GNOME to assist them in building clients that will take advantage of Bynari's new technology.
Bynari also announced its Insight client-server solution, consisting of Insight clients and Bynari's Insight Server, which provides a world-class Internet standards-based messaging and collaboration solution for Unix and Linux networks. The new Insight Server now provides messaging and collaboration services to Insight clients, enabling efficient collaboration between workgroups and individual users in enterprises of all sizes. Insight Server also supports Outlook clients.

Insight Server has recently gained broader acceptance as a highly scalable and affordable messaging and collaboration server solution for IBM's zSeries and S/390 mainframes under TurboLinux. Insight Server is also available in a high availability version for Compaq Proliant Non-Stop Clusters.

Insight products can be purchased via the company's Web Shop at or by contacting Bynari Sales at (800) 241-1086.
