The project is to design, and develop a new web-based email client. Similar to Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, Hotmail etc. The project will require design of the client, plus the adminstrative control panel which can automatically manage our orders allowing us to setup new email accounts and mailboxes - and another control panel for clients to manage their account and email settings.
The solution we are looking to build is not radical at all. It's something any provider on elance might have already created.
The system will be a hosted solution. That will allow users to access their email via our webmail system or through outlook, eudora, thunderbird or any other client via pop3, imap or smtp.
However, the webmail will include all the basic email features: Contact Manager, Spam Filtering, Virus Scanning, Adress Book, Attachments, Spell Checking, Calendar.
The adminsitrative system is a basic order management and client setup tool. The front end will allow potential clients to choose how many mailboxes they want, the size of the mailboxes they desire, provide the domain name for the email adresses, and to make a payment. The backend will approve payment, and automatically setup the mailboxes for the order.
The client will be able to login to their backend and setup and manage the names, passwords and setting for each of the email adresses and domains in their account.
We are looking for an AJAX, ASP.net webmail client, to run on our Microsoft Server - we need a firm that has proven specialty and ability with AJAX since its a new and exciting technology. Preference will be given to providers who already have created existing webmail systems and can provide actual demonstrations.
