NEWARK, USA: Arrow Bit SL, a software development company has released PstExporter and PstServer, two applications that provide alternative solutions for a long-standing obstacle to Mac owners.


Users switching from Windows to the Mac will now be able to either migrate their messages, or access them directly with virtually any e-mail program. Unlike other solutions, both applications run entirely on Mac OS X, which means that Windows and Outlook are no longer required for the transition to occur said a press release.

Thanks to the open nature of that protocol, almost any e-mail client in the market will be able to interact with PstServer.
