How do server side (sieve) filters work again?

Posted on: September 19th, 2022 by

Kolab Now offers a mail filtering feature. That makes it possible to apply a series of actions to specifically selected incoming emails, so that incoming mail meeting a certain criteria can be automatically processed by the server and handled/organized according to the defined actions.

A few years in a row, the Swiss Cyber Security Days have brought specialists and cyber security industry leaders together in the context of Swiss cyber security. This year the event is falling on 06 & 07 of April, and unlike last year, where the event was run as a ‘virtual get together’ it is housed in the Forum Fribourg.

Being specialists in this field, Apheleia IT (and so, Kolab Now) will be represented in Fribourg. You will be able to meet us there, discuss our future plans and vision with our team, and get a view of our enterprise offering; CyComm.

How Kolab Meet and integrated collaborative editing boosted my Christmas preparations

Posted on: November 12th, 2021 by

And.. its around the corner again – Christmas!
