Smith Micro Signs Agreement with Joymail.com to Bundle Internet CommSuite

Oct 15, 1998
Provider of English and Chinese e-mail services will offer Smith Micro's new all-in-one Internet communications software to subscribers

ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMSI) today announced an agreement with Joymail.com Inc., a provider of English and Chinese free e-mail services with a focus on serving Asian and Pacific Rim markets. Under the terms of the new pact, San Jose-based Joymail.com will offer Smith Micro's new Internet CommSuiteTM to both new and existing subscribers.

Internet CommSuite is a new, all-in-one Internet communications package that merges multiple Web communication functions into one fully integrated, easy-to-use package. Internet CommSuite enables users to phone, fax, video phone, send audio and video email and conduct other interactive activities, such as video security, over the Internet-with a single piece of communications software. Internet CommSuite is optimized for both traditional analog modems and newer broadband technologies such as cable and xDSL.

Joymail.com will use Smith Micro's software as a means of providing even greater value to its e-mail customers in the U.S., Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China. The company was especially impressed by the software's Video Sentry feature, which makes it possible to detect motion with a video camera, record it, save it to the hard drive or e-mail it, and/or trigger a sound file.

"We selected Internet CommSuite because it's a powerful and affordable solution that effectively provides all of the communications functionality that users need in a single, tightly integrated package," said Dr. Chao Huang, President of Joymail.com. "We see it as being well-suited for use in supporting the Chinese language market because its built-in voice support provides users with the opportunity to ultimately replace time-consuming, keyboard-based text e-mail responses with simple voice-based communications."

"We are pleased to be aligned with Joymail.com in this bundling relationship, because it clearly demonstrates the viability of Internet CommSuite as a solution for Internet service providers with a niche-market orientation," said Dan D. Sheppard, Smith Micro's Executive Vice President and COO. "Internet CommSuite's fully integrated design, combined with its exceptional ease-of-use makes it an ideal solution for Joymail.com's rapidly growing customer base in both the U.S. and Asian markets."

Internet CommSuite gives users all the software capabilities needed to talk for free over the Internet, make Internet video phone calls, send Internet faxes that bypass long-distance phone charges, create audio or audio/video e-mails, use an Internet answering machine, and more. All functions are activated from a single-click, easy-to-use software interface that resembles a TV remote control.
