Major New Features

Uniplex Business Software, Version 9.20 adds a POP3 (rfc 1939) server, which complements the existing IMAP4r1 (Internet Message Access Protocol, rfc 1731) server introduced in V9.10. This is in line with Uniplex' stated aim of making the Uniplex Mail module into a standalone Mail engine supporting all major mail clients on multiple platforms. In a move away from our proprietary standards for remote email, we have embraced the MIME (Multi-purpose Internet Message Extensions) technology standard in UBS Mail this maintains compatibility across the diverse mailing systems encountered on the Internet.

Delivery Status Notifications (DSN - defined in RFC 1891) and Message Disposition Notification (MDN - defined in RFC 2298) have both been added to Uniplex Mail to provide the same level of mail message status reports that Uniplex has had from the beginning.

Uniplex Datalink has been completely re-written to allow the interaction between Uniplex Structured Query Language (USQL) and the Uniplex Database Forms, thus simplifying the manipulation of valuable legacy data and allowing that data to be integrated with the Uniplex Spreadsheet and Word Processor. Uniplex Datalink interacts with the most current third party databases, such as Oracle, Informix On-Line, Dynamic Server and Ingres, which are not supplied with Uniplex II Plus.

Uniplex Document Access under version 9.20 provides further comprehensive document recognition and file conversion facilities to support the exchange of information between a community of Uniplex users and the users of other software packages.

The Uniplex Mail client has been changed to allow headers of messages received from the Internet to be read. There have also been several minor enhancements such as MDN/DSN support and print format improvements.

The Uniplex Mail Store import program, umd_runix has been altered to allow it to be used as a local Mail Delivery Agent (MDA). This means that mail received by SMTP is processed immediately and delivered into the Uniplex mail store. Apart from the obvious benefits in speed of receipt over the old uclock periodic collection method, this produces improvements in load balancing by eliminating the intermediate step of SMTP spooling received emails. For customers who do not use the Uniplex Mail client, there is a new configuration parameter that switches off Mail Notifications and Time Manager alarms completely.

The Pcap and Fcap files now contain generic entries (pcl5 and pcl5color) for Hewlett-Packard PCL5 printers. These support the Euro Sign on most printers (but not LaserJet III printers), and have other improvements. They should be used in preference to the hpIVecma entries from the APP that were previously used for such printers.

Note: Some second-line platforms do not have all three Datalinks available. Also, not all platforms have the LDAP client.
