"It was that focus, Peddemors says, that led to the development
of LinuxMagic's e-mail server, MagicMail. "Our niche market tended
to be helping people with problems surrounding all of the
infrastructures that ISPs run—for instance, their web
servers, their mail servers, DNS servers… but the largest
amount of problems always seemed to surround e-mail," he says.
"At the time, Peddemors says, there was nothing designed
specifically for ISPs. "Most people were still running either
homegrown open source solutions, or they were trying to take a
product that was built for the enterprise and get it to scale to
ISP levels…so we rolled up all the stuff we'd been working on
with some of our early ISP adopters, and tried to create the
perfect turnkey made-by-ISP-for-ISP mail server," he says."
