"Following in the footsteps of larger competitors, an open-source software company is working to accommodate the arrival of wireless email."

"Sendmail, a company that sells a proprietary version of open-source software for email servers, announced Tuesday the acquisition of Nascent Technologies, which makes software for accessing email via cell phones or the Web."

"The acquisition is one in a series of moves designed to add features to Sendmail software. The basic, free version of the software has been used widely on email servers across the Internet for years."

"Sendmail has stiff competition as it enters the wireless arena. On Tuesday, Sprint PCS said it will promote Hewlett-Packard's Openmail email software for businesses using wireless Internet access. And Sun Microsystems is improving the wireless access features of its iPlanet software."
