IBM yesterday released two previously announced Lotus additions to its midmarket line of Express software products.

Intended for use in organisations with up to 1,000 employees, IBM Lotus Domino Collaboration Express and IBM Lotus Domino Utility Server Express offer simplified installation and fewer administrative options than IBM's full-strength Domino products.

Domino Collaboration Express includes messaging server software supporting e-mail, scheduling, discussion forum and collaboration applications. The bundle offers several choices for end-user messaging applications, including IBM's Lotus Notes, Domino Web Access (formerly called iNotes) or Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook.

Available through IBM's channel resellers, Domino Collaboration Express' expected retail licensing price is $119 (£74) per user. A discounted, $89.25 per user retail price is available to customers switching from rival messaging products. Purchases are capped at 1,000 licences.

Domino Utility Server Express allows access to collaboration applications through a web browser or separately purchased Lotus Notes client. The software's retail price is $5,000 for a licence covering two CPUs. Licences are available to organisations with up to 1,000 employees.
