    Imanami's WebDir(R) delivers a self-service portal to Microsoft Exchange
    Server customers for enhanced end-user management of security groups and
    distribution lists

    LIVERMORE, Calif., March 6 /CNW/ -- Imanami Corporation, a leading
provider of point solutions for identity management with a focus on advanced
directory management for Microsoft Exchange Server and Active Directory(R),
today announced that it has partnered with Microsoft Corporation (Nasdaq:  
MSFT) to provide Exchange Server customers with enhanced web-based group
management functionality.
    Microsoft will deliver Imanami's directory management software, WebDir,
to select Exchange Server customers for enhanced and customized group
management functionality through a web-based front-end. This partnership
provides Exchange Server customers with a self-service portal, allowing IT
departments to delegate group management to end users while maintaining the
appropriate level of security and control over field management. This
service-oriented operational model takes the burden and time consuming task of
directory management away from Human Resources and IT departments, greatly
streamlining the processes.  WebDir empowers end users to maintain their
information and provides dynamic updating capability for distribution lists,
which frees-up valuable IT resources to focus on higher impact activities.
    "Microsoft's decision to provide WebDir to select Exchange Server
customers proves the value of having a convenient and powerful group
management solution," said Robert Haaverson, CEO of Imanami Corporation.  "It
will deliver unprecedented cost control and efficiency for all sized
    "Imanami has been an excellent partner and WebDir provides valuable group
management functionality that was not available before this partnership was
established," said Victor Alcantara, Senior Director, Microsoft Corporation.
