Novell launches directory-based free e-mail

Novell has launched a free Web-based e-mail service based on its NDS directory service, called myrealbox.com.

Myrealbox is a Novell-sponsored site that will offer free e-mail, based on Novell technologies, including its Novel Directory Services (NDS) and Novell Internet Messaging System (NIMS), Novell said in a statement.

The service will not be accompanied by advertising or marketing campaigns, according to the company, nor is the site designed to make a profit. Its purpose is to demonstrate Novell's technologies on the Web.

Directory services provide information about users on a network. It is like an electronic phone book that allows users to find other users and services on the network.

Eric Schmidt, Novell's CEO, has been pushing the value of directories on the Internet, saying they improve security for electronic commerce.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
