Charmey, Switzerland -- 22 September 2016 – Fookes Software Ltd today announced version 4 of the popular email migration tool, Aid4Mail. The new release adds a new utility, as well as features enabling IT Professionals to perform large-scale email migrations quickly and efficiently.

Offered at no extra cost with Aid4Mail Migrator licenses, Aid4Mail Console Launcher offers a user-friendly interface to interact with the Console (CLI) version of Aid4Mail.

The Console Launcher can process multiple user accounts simultaneously from a single CSV file containing user information and migration settings. This saves IT professionals having to create complex batch files or scripts to perform large multi-user migrations. It also intelligently manages concurrent user migrations, which can speed up migrations by 500%*.

“We’re lucky to have customers who identify with our product so strongly that they offer us their opinions on what they would like to see in future versions,” said Fookes Software Founder and CEO Eric Fookes. “So when our customers asked for an easier way to process multiple user accounts, we listened and we delivered.”

To further enhance compatibility Aid4Mail 4 now supports Microsoft Outlook 64-bit in addition to the previously supported 32-bit edition.

“Outlook 64-bit isn’t recommended by Microsoft in most cases as it limits compatibility with many applications. Despite this, we still had a number of customers requesting a 64-bit version of Aid4Mail,” said Fookes Software Developer Jérôme Monteil. “As 64-bit Outlook isn’t supported by many other enterprise-grade mail migration applications, we knew we had to provide a solution for these customers.”

The full list of Aid4Mail improvements in this update include:

  • Aid4Mail Console Launcher:
    • Launches and monitors concurrent migrations using mail account settings stored in a CSV file
    • User-friendly GUI
    • Migration scheduling
  • CSV support for Aid4Mail Console: easily batch processes multiple mail accounts from a single CSV file
  • Encrypt and password-protect your CSV file so you can share it with your IT team without revealing sensitive user logon details
  • Email notifications: contacts you when the migration is complete or if there is an error
  • Microsoft Outlook 64-bit support

With this update, Aid4Mail reinforces its place as the fastest and most accurate email migration tool on the market. The update is free to all existing Aid4Mail customers and trial users.
