Internal E-mail / Escalation System
The internal e-mail system provides an e-mail system for your users that can both send mail via MS Outlook, as well as import sent or received mail in MS Outlook. This e-mail is completely self-sufficient and will provide an e-mail style communication tool, even when external e-mail has not been set up.
