MailServer/390 provides an SMTP service process that runs under CICS. Inbound and outbound messages reside in VSAM files delivered to either mainframe users via 3270 interfaces, LAN email systems (e.g., Lotus Notes Mail, cc:Mail, Microsoft Mail, Microsoft Exchange), or POP3 clients (e.g., Microsoft Exchange, Netscape, Eudora, Pegasus). MailServer/390 makes mainframes full participants in TCP/IP email systems.

In some organizations, there are government or industry requirements for oversight and archiving of all communications between your employees and your customers. These types of requirements have made implementing Internet or intranet mail communications with customers or vendors prohibitively difficult to implent using de-centralized client/server architecture.
Now salespeople in the field and remote offices use electronic mail to communicate with colleagues at headquarters. Workers in the same building now use electronic mail to communicate quickly in writing rather than wait for regularly schedule meetings. Problems are identified and solved in a fraction of the time it used to take. Customers can communicate directly with their contacts in your company building long-term rock solid relationships.
As organizations learn how difficult, expensive, and unreliable client server applications can be, there is a natural return to the mainframe platform for high volume critical application needs. In addition the host mainframe can provide a level of security and archival capabilities not possible in distributed applications.
