Outblaze Messaging System
Submitted by Outblaze Ltd

Outblaze Limited is based in Hong Kong, but provides a variety of outsourced electronic communication and collaboration services to users in more than 100 countries. The core operation of the privately held company is e-mail outsourcing.

The Outblaze Messaging System is a robust, fully integrated solution operating
in Application Services Provider (ASP) mode, and all of its applications and solutions are developed and managed in open source environments such as Redhat Linux and FreeBSD. Versatile and highly reliable, its scalable and flexible design provides feature-rich and high-load Web-mail services to such clients as portals, Internet service
providers, e-mail providers, media companies, and organizations requiring corporate e-mail capability. The payment gateway product allows users to purchase revenue enhancing premium mail services, e.g. larger mailboxes, POP3/SMTP services and e-mail forwarding. The system further offers comprehensive Web-based administrative
tools for clients to monitor useful statistics related to their messaging services.

The system presently handles some 80 million e-mail messages daily and significant competition to Outblaze comes only from United States based companies. Even then Outblaze offers the world's lowest cost of service as well as very high guaranteed levels of service.
