Aug 07, 2000, 13:51 (6 Talkback[s])

"Hewlett-Packard Company today announced that OpenMail for Linux has passed the 1 million user mark after only 10 months of availability. OpenMail's momentum continues to grow as a result of dramatic increases in downloads, as well as HP's continued establishment of partner relationships with top Application Service Providers (ASPs), including AT&T and PSINet. OpenMail is one of the leading business-messaging and collaboration systems for the Linux operating system."

"In addition, OpenMail is now available on Red Hat's e-commerce Web site (http://www.redhat.com/store/). "Since making OpenMail available for direct purchase through Red Hat's portal, the number of users has risen dramatically -- current downloads account for 3,500 users on an average day," said Nigel Upton, general manager of HP's OpenMail business. "The feedback we have received from users has been extremely positive and is a testament to the opportunity that OpenMail, combined with Linux's open source momentum, presents to enterprises in the fast-growing area of messaging and collaboration."

"The Red Hat site currently offers fully functional copies of OpenMail with Red Hat 6.1 Professional for download. This version of OpenMail is unrestricted for a limited number of users, allowing customers to take advantage of OpenMail's proven, robust, e-services technology."
