Network Computing Magazine's 'Tech Tracker' has published a review of the Lemonade Profile Email Standard that Isode has been active in promoting.
It's a fair review of the current state of play, although of course we would have preferred more mentions of Isode as we were after all the first company onto the market with servers that comply with the standard.
Where the review does fall down a little is in its assessment of the state of the client market. Whilst the author correctly points out that the range of clients able to take advantage of the full Lemonade standard is currently limited, the article doesn't perhaps make it clear that any existing IMAP client will function quite happily with Lemonade compliant email servers. Lemonade is, after all, an extension to the IMAP standard, not a replacement for it.
ISPs and Organisations looking into IMAP server replacements, or looking to offer an IMAP service for the first time would therefore do well to future-proof their systems by investing in IMAP servers such as Isode's M-Box. There are already plenty of clients that support some elements of the Lemonade profile (like IMAP-IDLE, the open standards approach to replicating the push-email experience) and there is no downside to preparing for the appearance of new clients supporting other Lemonade initiatives.
