IBM on Monday shipped the newest member in its Express family, a messaging and scheduling version of Notes that the Armonk, N.Y.-based computer maker says is its answer to Exchange for small- and mid-sized businesses..."It's our Microsoft killer," Fontaine boasted. One of the ways IBM expects to beat up on Exchange, said Fontaine, is with Notes Domino Express' aggressive pricing. Although the standard per-license price is $98, Big Blue's offering it for $48 per user when trading up from competing e-mail products. And the definition of "competing" is about as broad as it gets. "Any commercial competitive e-mail product qualifies, even Linux and freeware," said Fontaine.
