In fact, ZipMail for Hotmail is built on a common code layer used for our already existing products ZipMail for Outlook Web Access and ZipMail for Lotus iNotes/Domino Web Access, respectively the Webmails of Microsoft (included in the Microsoft Exchange server) and IBM Lotus (included in the IBM Lotus Domino server).
The version numbering of the products based on this common code layer follows the version number of this code layer.
This code layer is used in ZipMail for Outlook Web Access and ZipMail for Lotus iNotes/Domino Web Access (including with the first Domino server pre-iNotes Webmail version) for more than 3 years.
