HP to resell Sendmail

In the past, HP was a strict ‘Microsoft shop’. I hate that term… 🙂 Anyway, they have been selling more and more non-Microsoft products lately, like Linux. This is probably because of their customers, as Linux has been making huge inroads in the server space, and even some into the desktop space. Now HP is going to resell Sendmail as part of their server offerings. This is a surprise move, because HP has long been a Microsft Exchange reseller. But if their customers that use Linux need an enterprise email system, Exchange is the wrong duck for their pond. I don’t think this news is anything earth shattering…Its just more proof that there are companies out there that use Linux for their mission critical systems. My guess is that most companies that use Sendmail are service providers, like web hosts and ISPs.
