ZixIt Announces ZixMail's Send-Securely-to-Anyone Capability; Recipients No Longer Need Encryption Keys or Decryption Software
DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 26, 2000--ZixIt Corporation (Nasdaq:ZIXI) announced today a major new release of ZixMail(TM), its user-friendly, secure messaging and document delivery service.
The new ZixMail capability will enable Internet users to send secure messages to any email address in the world, even if the recipient is not a ZixMail user. The new version, available now from www.zixmail.com, will also expand the feature set of ZixMail to include spell checking, hyperlink support, and rich-text formatting.
David P. Cook, chairman and chief executive officer of ZixIt Corporation, commented, "The ability to send secure messages or documents to anyone in the world -- regardless of whether the recipient has encryption keys or decryption software -- will dramatically improve the way users communicate over the Internet. This is the first in a series of important announcements that the company will make over the next three weeks."
Providing users with this uniquely versatile capability, the new, more powerful version of ZixMail will automatically select the appropriate method for delivering the message securely to each individual recipient. For example, when a secure message is addressed to multiple recipients -- only some of whom have encryption keys --ZixMail will use the available public keys to individually encrypt the messages for those recipients. For recipients without encryption keys or decryption software, ZixMail will safely deliver the secure message to the recipient via SecureDelivery.com(TM), ZixIt's new secure messaging portal for the Internet. SecureDelivery.com will be the subject of an upcoming announcement.
ZixIt also introduced today several other new enhancements to ZixMail, including a spell checker, hyperlink support, and rich-text formatting functionality. The new version of ZixMail may be downloaded and used without charge. The company plans to begin charging for its ZixMail services at the beginning of 2001.
ZixIt Corporation provides products and services that enhance security, privacy, and convenience on the Internet. ZixMail(TM) is a secure document delivery, private email, and message-tracking service that enables users worldwide to easily send encrypted and digitally signed communications using their existing email systems and addresses, regardless of whether their recipients have encryption keys or decryption software.
