Conducent provided Caliban Computing with the technology that
served the banner ads that appeared in Caliban Mailer. In
return for showing these ads, Conducent agreed to pay Caliban Computing an
amount based on the number of ads presented and clicked by the user. This
scheme allowed Caliban Computing to modify Caliban Mailer to operate in
'sponsored mode', and provide it free of charge to the user. It also
helped to reduce Caliban Computing's administrative overhead related to
managing user registration. Now that Conducent is closing, this will
of version 1.20.1, Caliban Mailer will no longer contain Conducent
technology, and banner ads will not be shown. If you currently use an
earlier version of Caliban Mailer, you should uninstall it completely
(click "yes to all" if prompted to remove shared files), and install the
new version. (For best results, we recommend that you use the
"full" installation pack.) This process will remove all of the Conducent support files from your
computer, including the saved banner ad folder and the files
formerly used to communicate with the Conducent servers.
Caliban Mailer will be "standard" shareware. Note that shareware doesn't mean
freeware. You will be able to try out Caliban Mailer for thirty days to
determine if it meets your requirements. At the end of the trial period,
you must either purchase Caliban Mailer
or stop using it and remove it from your system.
You can obtain a registration number
(or 'PIN') by registering
Caliban Mailer for
currently registered users, it will be business as usual. The PIN you
received when you registered modified Caliban Mailer so that the ads did
not appear. You will need the same PIN number to register the new version,
to prevent it from 'expiring'.
you were satisfied using Caliban Mailer in sponsored mode, and cannot
afford the registration fee, please contact
us. We are always willing to make arrangements with registered
charities and non-profit organizations.
