SkyFile Mail updated

Marlink has launched SkyFile Mail 10.1, designed to improve management of e-mail traffic and user accounts through automatic detection and profile automation. The new version is available as a free Over the Air (OTA) update on Marlink’s VSAT and back-up L-band services.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}A new feature added is Device Auto Detection, where the system will automatically detect the active connectivity in use on board (VSAT or L-band) and automatically apply the adapted features and rules related to that connectivity profile. A pop up message also notifies the administrator on board of the change, and an e-mail can notify the IT manager on shore when the back-up device is in use.

Also added is a Smart Profile Management function to enable users to select pre-defined rules to be activated according to the connectivity in use, such as e-mail size limits, enabling/disabling OTA updates, filters and type/priority of message. Users can define these specific rules and behaviours fleet-wide. A new ‘E-mails on-hold’ feature also automatically stores and then sends e-mails and files when the primary connectivity is restored.

In addition, a new auto-forwarding functionality supports customers making changes to their vessel name by automatically transferring e-mails to the new e-mail address during the first three months (notifying the sender that the e-mail address has changed), while customised access rights to shared folders has been introduced to allow the Master to restrict access to newly created folders.

“SkyFile Mail’s extensive new feature-set reflects our commitment to continuous development of business critical solutions in line with what our customers need,” said Tore Morten Olsen, president maritime, Marlink.

“We are giving users greater control of their e-mail system, ensuring that they will always receive messages regardless of the connectivity in use, while placing focus on cost-control for multi-band network configurations.”{/mprestriction}
