Mail2World Surpasses 10 Million Hosted Mailboxes, Signaling Advances in Software as a Service (SaaS) for Business Email

LOS ANGELES, CA November 19, 2007


Mail2World, Inc., a pioneering force in business SaaS communications solutions aggregated on a single Web platform, today announced that its registered user base has skyrocketed to more than 10 million users and over 5.6 billion messages handled per month. By surpassing this significant milestone, Mail2World reaffirms its authority in the development, deployment and management of on-demand messaging and collaboration solutions since the company was founded in 2000. Mail2World derived its accelerated growth from a mix of market segments around the world, including ISPs, enterprise businesses, small and midsize businesses, and institutions of higher education—all strategically targeted by the company’s direct sales teams and global channel partners. Mail2World’s dramatic market expansion was heralded earlier this month by the company’s announcement of its all-new, all-Cisco® network hosted by IT Infrastructure services leader SAVVIS, Inc.


“We believe our strong growth reveals not only high demand for our services and technology, but also the convergence of several industry and market drivers,” states Mail2World Executive Vice President and COO Youssef Abed. “For example, our recent increase in business tells us that our seven-year-old delivery model of offering messaging and collaboration software as subscription-based, online services has finally been accepted into the mainstream of business communications. It simply no longer makes sense for companies to burden themselves with the expense and logistics of on-premise software, now that SaaS has proven its ability to meet market demands for high performance, reliability, client-centric customization and low total cost of ownership.”


Mr. Abed points out that another key factor in his company’s success is recent advancements in Web technologies like AJAX, which are rapidly closing the gap between traditional desktop apps and feature-rich, interactive and highly responsive Internet apps like Mail2World’s. “AJAX is one of those technologies that have revolutionized the Web forever,” asserts Mr. Abed. “Mail2World was one of the first service providers in our industry to implement AJAX across its application portfolio.
