eTools Poised to Help Gulf Coast Businesses Rebuild After Rita Via E-mail Disaster Recovery

Austin-Based Company’s MXToolBox E-mail Disaster Recovery Enables Hurricane Rita-Impacted Companies to Rebuild Infrastructure and Re-Establish Contact With Customers and Employees

AUSTIN, TX — (MARKET WIRE) — 09/23/2005 — The eTools Group, a leading provider of business e-mail security solutions, announces a special offer for companies impacted by Hurricane Rita. eTools is offering 30 days of free E-mail Disaster Recovery service for businesses in the storm’s path. This service provides e-mail continuity, allowing companies to continue operations and maintain critical email communication.

With the storm expected to make landfall along the Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana early Saturday, Eric Rachal, founder of the eTools Group, predicts that, “many affected companies’ communications infrastructure will be destroyed or heavily compromised. We saw this happen with Hurricane Katrina and want to offer the same assistance we provided then to companies who may now be especially vulnerable to the effects of Rita.”

eTools Group offers a simple, powerful solution to keep businesses up and running through such unforeseen emergencies. The company’s MXToolBox E-mail Disaster Recovery service allows users to maintain contact with one another and with clients for the duration of any such emergency. To accommodate last minute subscribers, the company has expanded capacity on its MXToolBox systems.

Here’s how it works: by enabling “spooling” on its clients’ accounts, eTools ensures that it can take over storage of all incoming e-mail in the event of a server crash or power outage. For the duration of such an emergency, users can continue to access their e-mail from any web browser. This allows critical communication among staff and with customers to flow uninterrupted. Once an affected company’s server comes back up, eTools automatically delivers all the e-mail that it stored on behalf of its client.

To take advantage of the free MXToolBox E-mail Disaster Recovery service, affected businesses should contact the company at (512) 637-8762. For more information, visit
