IMAP, POP3 components merged into Secure Mail; new Terminal Emulation component includes both Telnet and SSH

  |   Martin Vobr

As of August 20, 2013, in Release 2013 R2 we simplified our product list by merging the 'lite' mail components into Rebex Secure Mail. We also merged Rebex Telnet and Rebex SSH Shell into a new component called Rebex Terminal Emulation.

Which products are affected?

Rebex POP3/SSL replaced by Rebex Secure Mail
Rebex IMAP/SSL replaced by Rebex Secure Mail
Rebex Telnet replaced by Rebex Terminal Emulation
Rebex SSH Shell replaced by Rebex Terminal Emulation

How will it affect you?

  • If you purchased an affected component after July 21, 2012 (one year and 30 days ago):
    You get a FREE UPGRADE to new product. Just log into and download the new installation packages. 
  • If you purchased an affected component before July 21, 2012: Support contract renewal for the discontinued variants is no longer available, sorry. However, you can upgrade to the new, upgraded product variant with a 15% discount. And of course, you can continue using the old version indefinitely if you prefer.
  • If you are not sure when the component was purchased:
    Log into to see the status of your support contract or contact us at
  • If you planned to purchase a discontinued product variant and don’t want to pay more for the new, more powerful product:
    Until September 30, 2013 you can purchase an upgraded product variant for the same price as its simpler, discontinued variant:
    Rebex Secure Mail 1 developer for the same price as Rebex POP3/SSL or Rebex IMAP/SSL
    Rebex Terminal Emulation 1 developer for the same price as Rebex Telnet
    To order a different license counts or different variants, just contact us at and we will send you a discounted purchase link.

Why are we making this change?

  • Percentage of users who wanted a ‘lite’ variant of the Mail component has been steadily decreasing for a long time.
  • Many users who purchased a 'lite' variant of the mail component later found out they in fact needed both POP3 and IMAP capability and had to upgrade. 
  • Many users who purchased either Telnet or SSH Shell later found out they in fact want to connect to remote server using both protocols and had to upgrade.
  • Less purchase options makes it simpler for everyone.
