Kolab allows you to handle your email fast and efficiently, including server-side filtering and pre-sorting, shared email folders with colleagues, or among departments. Shared folders allow following public mailing lists efficiently and make their history available to everyone. Group based access control lists avoid unnecessary administration overhead, and ensure no loose ends are left dangling. Server side rules can also filter your outgoing mail based on your requirements. Check outgoing recipients against robinson lists to avoid prosecution for unsolicited email, and much more.
