Mailtraq has always had a close relationship with the educational sector, providing very cost effective solutions tailored for use by students as well as staff. Over the years Mailtraq has continuously introduced features to help schools and colleges make the Internet available to their students.

Computers in a laboratory are shared by a large number of students and staff. This makes it unsafe to store personal information on any of them, and it requires all user data to be stored centrally.
Secure and Tamperproof
Normal e-mail clients are simply not equipped to deal with the problems associated with shared computers. There is very little that can be done on client machines to prevent tampering (particularly with software configurations) which is a common complaint for school IT administrators. Mailtraq WebMail is managed entirely on the server, making it impossible for clients to affect other users.
Shared Address Books
WebMail's shared address books are ideal for providing lists of staff and faculties or departments to students. Centrally managed address books also make it easy to make changes that are immediately visible to all the users. Mailslots defined as visible to other users can automatically appear in the address books.
Mailtraq can generate user accounts from a simple text file, and they can be configured to automatically expire and be removed when the student leaves.
Easy To Learn
WebMail's simple user interface is the perfect way to introduce students to the concepts of e-mail, without exposing them to the complexities of most modern software.
WebMail is part of Mailtraq
Because WebMail is so tightly integrated with Mailtraq, features such as the powerful content barring, reporting and account quotas are a part of the WebMail service.
