San Antonio, Texas - (The Hosting News) - June 22, 2007 - Managed web hosting services company, Rackspace, has reached a business milestone, as its Global Messaging Portfolio surpassed 100,000 users, with its suite of mail and messaging solutions. Instituted in response to customer demand, Rackspace offers a comprehensive email portfolio with four enterprise-level messaging solutions.

The company recently made a significant addition to its suite of mail products with the launch of Managed Microsoft Exchange from Rackspace, the fastest growing product in its messaging portfolio. Additionally, Rackspace's suite of messaging and collaboration solutions include Noteworthy Managed Mail, Imail Server by Ipswitch and Dedicated Microsoft Exchange, where a customer manages their own Exchange server that is hosted by Rackspace.

Derek De Gannes, Vice President of Information Services at Caribbean Airlines remarked, ''When Caribbean Airlines Limited was formed, its aim was to be a lean, focused and profitable organization that leveraged outsourced internal systems to achieve this goal. With more than 1,000 mail users, we needed a stable, robust and experienced business relationship who was able to handle this sort of business-critical function for us in a short time frame, Rackspace came highly recommended and assisted us with the transition from internally managed email to Managed Microsoft Exchange from Rackspace seamlessly. I would recommend Rackspace to any organization that wants to focus its attention on the core business by leaving email management to a specialist.''

Emil Sayegh, Director of Product Marketing at Rackspace Managed Hosting added, ''Email is typically regarded as a mission-critical business function and requires a solid infrastructure and highly-skilled staff in order to perform reliably. Rackspace's mail portfolio was created in response to customer demand for email services that are backed by the same Fanatical Support that we provide for our hosting services. Our suite of messaging services has received great reception from the market and we have recently surpassed the milestone of delivering reliable, flexible email solutions to more than 100,000 users.''
