(The Hosting News) – Open-Xchange, a provider of business-class open source e-mail and collaboration software, announced today an agreement with LinuxMagic, the developers of MagicMail, which supplies e-mail, messaging and spam protection products to ISPs, telcos and enterprises across North America, as well as protecting and servicing millions of e-mail accounts worldwide.
LinuxMagic will incorporate the Open-Xchange software in its MagicMail offering that is designed as a turn-key solution for ISPs and telcos with 2,000 to 200,000 users. MagicMail comes with integrated anti-spam protection and support from LinuxMagic, one of the foremost experts in e-mail and spam security, as well as a stable redundant infrastructure built on Linux technology.
“Our customers have trusted us to provide the best-of-breed e-mail and anti-spam solutions, and Open Xchange will be a terrific value-add to our MagicMail and other e-mail solutions,“ said Michael Peddemors, president and CEO, LinuxMagic. “The Open Xchange collaboration software and support for mobile devices is the perfect complement to our LinuxMagic carrier-grade e-mail and anti-spam offering. We’re giving our clients the best combination of features to, in turn, offer their customers.”
“Our collaboration software and support for mobiles are a natural extension of features that LinuxMagic can add to its portfolio,” said Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange. “Together, we’re delivering additional value to ISP and telco users who now have these new features as an integrated offering with the same high level of support.”
Open-Xchange software integrates e-mail, calendar, contact and task management with advanced groupware features such as information management and document sharing. Productivity is enhanced through unique teamwork features, like team view, single-password document sharing, and shared calendars, contacts, tasks and documents. With mobility support, users can have access to their data anywhere, anytime and with virtually any device.
LinuxMagic uses Open-Xchange Hosting Edition, the only groupware specifically designed to meet the needs of SaaS (Software as a Service) providers. Open-Xchange can be easily integrated into existing infrastructures without changing the existing authentication, user setup, system administration, provisioning and billing tools.
