The Bat! Voyager 4.1 – new opportunities

Following the release of The Bat! 4.1, RITLabs brings to users’ attention The Bat! Voyager 4.1, a portable variant of the new version of The Bat!.

The most important enhancement in The Bat! Voyager 4.1 is the HTML templates creation option. In the new version creating HTML messages is much easier – in addition to plain text, The Bat! templates can handle the full range of formatting, pictures, background images, tables and other HTML message attributes.

Many business users need to adhere to their corporate style in every message. The new capability makes this extremely easy. The HTML templates allow you to save the graphic elements of your message as a template. All you have to do is write your text in the appropriate place. The same applies to sending accounting and other spreadsheet data. A template with a document headline, a table and a signature is all you need to generate a smart-looking spreadsheet. The table itself can be imported from an external application. These are just a few of the ways that HTML templates can come in handy.

Unicode encoding was first introduced in version 4.0 of The Bat! Voyager but was restricted to the messages. With version 4.1, Unicode functionality is extended so that now your templates can contain symbols or any combination of alphabets. For example, users can create templates in English yet include German or Spanish alphabet characters if needed.

The Bat! Voyager new version features a new option for the S/MIME protocol mechanism. This means users can now create four kinds of certificate: signature only, encryption only, signature and encryption and Certifying Authority (CA) certificates. The latter is used for creating a personal Certifying Authority and a certificate hierarchy. Moreover, the user is able to specify whether a certificate is self-signed (this does not apply to encryption-only certificates) or signed with an earlier CA certificate.

RITLabs has made the backup and restore process faster, more reliable, and more convenient. This is made possible by modifications to the backup file format. The new format considerably increases backup reliability. Furthermore, a new file processing algorithm significantly accelerates the backup and restore process.

The Bat! Voyager 4.1 allows users to backup or restore selected folders to/from the backup file. This helps ensure you only keep the most important information and do not waste time saving/restoring minor messages. Finally, backup files can be encrypted and password-protected with a safe RC2 algorithm (users are reminded that they will not be able to restore their encrypted backup data without a password nor can they restore data backed up by The Bat! Voyager 4.1 with older versions of the software).
