  Flicks Software launches ocxQmail v2 with FollowUpMail (TM) technology
  Flicks Software's ocxQmail component allows you to send and schedule mail for future delivery using the standard SMTP protocol from any program that can use ActiveX/OLE components. The ability to schedule email allows webmasters to create a personalized, followup email campaign for every website visitor that registers with their email address.

 

 

 

ocxQmail Version 3 has New powerful features:

For Immediate Release - In response to the recent deluge of email bound viruses, Flicks Software, Inc. releases ocxQmail version 3, providing critical electronic mail delivery assurance. ocxQmail version 3 automatically retries/resends emails several days after the initial email launch, allowing world wide email delivery systems time to recover from virus initiated shutdowns. “We have created this feature in response to enormous customer demand for an email program which allows delayed email retries.” , stated Kevin Flick, CEO. “Combined with its current features which allow you to send mail using the standard SMTP protocol from any program using OCX/COM components, ocxQmail version 3 is truly the premier email component.” Kevin Flick and his development team enabled ocxQmail version 3 with even more versatile functions: ocxQmail version 3 increases the mail shot speed by initially defaulting to the recipient’s SMTP server as the receipt address. This substantially increases the throughput of email shots and avoids SMTP bottlenecks, a common problem with most email programs. If the recipient’s SMTP server does not respond, the program automatically reverts to a more traditional procedure of routing the email through the sender’s SMTP account to the recipient’s POP3 account. Unlike other basic email programs, ocxQmail version 3 queues messages for batch delivery at user specified timeframes. Your server does not have to wait for the mail message to be physically sent before continuing with the next task. ocxQmail version 3 also permits scheduling of emails at any time in the future. ocxQmail version 3 also speeds ASP page responsiveness by delegating the actual sending of an email to a companion Windows NT Service.

VideoQuota Now protects By Referer!:

For Immediate Release - Flicks Software Solves Windows Media Services Problem; VIDEOQUOTA now protects streaming media By Referer! May 25, 2000 Just weeks ago Flicks Software of Santa Monica, CA announced the release of “VideoQuota” ; streaming media access management for Windows Media Services (WMS)/NetShow . VideoQuota’s new functionality allows administrators to password protect streaming media (video and audio) BY REFERER , served through Windows Media Services / NetShow . VideoQuota with By Referer protection marks an important advancement in user authentication for streaming media, by providing the first commercial solution to this problem. In the past, administrators have been forced to create adhoc methods of validating users from referring URL’s, through client side scripts and clumsy URL randomizers. "Previously there has not been an effective commercial solution for password protecting streaming media websites By Referer”, said Kevin Flick, President of Flicks Software, “The problem originated in the fact that Windows Media Services did not send By Referer information in the packet header. Websites which validated users based on their referring URL denied all users, because the By Referer field was not available.” Kevin Flicks concluded, "With VideoQuota, Flicks Software has leveraged its extensive experience in commercial membership authentication tools such as AuthentiX, and WebQuota - the industry standard for IIS. VideoQuota allows administrators to take full advantage of Windows Media Services". Now, utilizing VideoQuota’s dual protection modules, Kevin Flick and his development team have delivered a solution that will allow administrators, in particular Original Content Providers, to limit streaming video access right down to the referring URL. VideoQuota validates users from a supplied template SQL Server database, or via any ODBC database.
