Our next major release, Brightmail Gateway 8.0, is coming soon andwith that, we are now open for applications to join our beta program.

Becausewe like to get as many customers and as diverse deployments involved as possible, itdoesn't matter if you have 50 people protected by Brightmail or 50,000.

In order to participate, you'll need to have either spareappliance hardware (for example, a retired 82xx series appliance thatyou have for a test environment) or access to VMWare virtualisationproducts in order to run the Brightmail Gateway Virtual Edition.  Thereis _some_ scope for us to provide you with a loaner HW appliance butthese are limited in number and first come first serve!

Ifyour company is interested in joining, get the ball rolling by droppingme an email to with a few details such as:

STN Forum username (if applicable), actual name and job title.

Company Name.

Current Brightmail product and version.

Mail platform and number of mailboxes in your environment.

Messages processed per day.

Note- We are only taking applications from existing Brightmail customers atthis time and not every application is guaranteed to be accepted.

Due to volume of applications, I might not be able to get back to youall individually if you aren't successful in applying.
