Dallas, TX – August 7, 2001 – Bynari Inc. announced today the availability of a major enhancement to its popular Insight messaging and collaboration product. With this new version of the Insight client software, Bynari states that users of Linux and UNIX desktops in the enterprise will now be well equipped to effectively participate in their company’s Microsoft Exchange network. 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 interact with Outlook users in their network, without requiring unique support from the Exchange server. One of the unique aspects of Bynari’s Insight product is its interoperability with Microsoft Outlook/Exchange. This new release, Insight Version 2.1, adds significant new calendar management features, such as free/busy support and Outlook-like accept/decline operation for meeting notices, improves calendar performance, and adds numerous usability enhancements.

“The new capabilities available with Insight version 2.1 will dramatically improve the ability to integrate 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 announced its Insight GroupWare 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. Bynari believes that this is the first non-web based groupware solution available for the Linux market.

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