For Mercury, the following information is available on my pages:

Version history:


Current version: 1.49

This version can be used for Novell Netware 3.x, 4.x, 5.x and 6.x in Bindery and NDS mode.

Please note:
  • We strongly advise you NOT to use older versions as the integration with NDS might give problems, specifically the 1.44 version.
  • The development for the NLM version has stopped. We strongly advise you to switch to the /32 version. Novell integration in that version is much better and the /32 version is under full development, with anti-spam and new modules like IMAP4 and Web-based subscription for mailing lists.
