Email is the most widely used communication medium in business
Blacksburg, VA (PRWEB) July 25, 2007
Webmail.us, a leading provider of business-class email services to small, medium, and geographically dispersed businesses, today announced that the company now provides email hosting to more than 500,000 business email users. The company attributes its continued growth to the market shift towards email outsourcing and the desire to work with an email specialist for such mission critical business communications.
"Email is the most widely used communication medium in business," said Pat Matthews, chief executive officer at Webmail.us. "Businesses rely on email, but a growing number of them don't want to manage it themselves. They turn to us because we're specialists--we're 100% focused on hosting email for our customers."
"Prior to working with Webmail.us, we were managing 10,000 mailboxes in-house," explained Larry Green, director of information systems of the PGA of America. "We were tired of trying to keep up with spam, viruses, and all of the other junk associated with managing an email system. But email is mission critical and we couldn't just outsource it to anyone. After a thorough search, we partnered with Webmail.us because they specialize in hosting email for businesses. All they think about is email every day. That gave us the peace of mind we needed to be comfortable with moving our email accounts offsite."
"As a web design firm, we've also found ourselves hosting email for our customers," said Phil Pelanne, the network administrator for New City Media. "But unlike other IT services, managing email gets more complex and time consuming every day. As email hosting started to become a full-time job, we realized we needed to find someone that could help. With dozens of hosting companies to choose from, we selected Webmail.us because of their unique focus and industry expertise. They now host more than 700 email accounts for our customers."

•Domain-based email (i.e., firstname.lastname@example.org)
•Support for POP3, IMAP4, and SMTP protocols, which allow customers to use their favorite desktop software, such as Outlook and Thunderbird, and wireless devices, such as Blackberry and Treo
