Strong Growth in the Hosted Email Market Fueled by Concerns Over Security, Archiving and Compliance

New Study by The Radicati Group Provides an Analysis of Both the Business and Consumer Hosted Email Markets, Including Market Trends, Installed Base Market Share, Revenue Forecasts, and Corporate Attitudes

PALO ALTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 12, 2005 -- The Radicati Group, Inc.'s latest study, "Hosted Email, 2005-2009," provides an in-depth look at all segments of the hosted email market, including: Hosted Business Email Providers, Managed Business Email Providers, ISP/Webmail Providers, and Mobile Phone Email Providers.

According to the study, while 64% of "hosted business email" accounts are currently small business customers (1-100 employees), a greater percentage of medium and large businesses are investigating and deploying hosted email solutions. Faced with growing messaging complexity and rising costs, the lucrative "mid-market" of 500 to 5,000 employee organizations represents a key opportunity for hosted email providers. These customers are often frustrated with managing security concerns on their own, as well as responding to growing requirements for email archiving and regulatory compliance.

The study estimates there are currently 856 million hosted email accounts; this is expected to grow to 1,449 million by the end of 2009, or 69% over the four year period.
