Azure Cosmos DB is a fully managed Microsoft NoSQL database for modern app development, which is growing in popularity. Various APIs are available for connecting to Cosmos DB, as for example SQL API, Cassandra API or MongoDB API.

Distribute Emails via Office 365 / Microsoft Graph with List & Label

ByJochen BartlauApr 3, 20233 min read

So it was about time to offer a new, up-to-date solution for the very frequently used email delivery.

What Do 64 Interim Releases Have to Do with Today’s Quality Control?

This blog post was prompted by a discussion in our forum. One of our customers, who’s been using List & Label since 1995 (which actually goes back longer than my own experience!) sent us a message, telling us that due to fear of errors, he usually waits for up to a year after the release, before finally implementing a new version. Right here, I’d like to explain why I don’t think that’s a good idea, and give you a bit of an insight into our quality assurance. We want you to feel good about using List & Label in your applications on a daily basis.
