Wow, I never knew that - messaging
By teich on Feb 16, 2007
As I go through the learning process here, I thought I'd start a new series of posts on various surprises I come across. For the first in this post, I wanted to focus on our comms business.
150+ Million mailboxes
Yes. Over 150 million mailboxes currently active and deployed in the marketplace running on Sun Java Communication Suite. That includes anything from .mac to Verizon online to unified messaging to customers I only wish I could talk about. That is a REALLY large number. The largest as a matter of fact. Bigger than Yahoo (sorry Olivia), bigger than Exchange, bigger than anyone else on the planet.
Now of course, I'm not saying our product is perfect. Zimbra has just about the most amazing interface I've ever seen. PostPath gives you drop in replacement for Exchange. and of course, we're not open source... yet. But wow, that is a really amazing number for a product that is so stealth.
