Telecomweb is reporting that Yahoo has bought Zimbra for $350M in cash. Yahoo is hoping to capture some business email clients. (Y! has 250M consumer email accounts). Email is still the killer app - Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo are just trying to figure out how to make more money from it.
From an ISP side, this is good news. Zimbra has a deal with Comcast, so even the cablecos know that business email can be profitable. Do YOU have a strategy in place to capture some revenue from premium email services? No? Then I'll see you at the ROUND TABLE!
