Webmail in the educational market appears to be a three horse race between “Yahoo! Zimbra, Google Gmail and Outlook/Microsoft Exchange”. And Yahoo’s Zimbra won out against the other two in a bid to provide for Stanford University.
This is the latest in a series of victories for Zimbra, which includes Georgia Tech, University of Wisconsin, Texas A&M, Cal Poly, and University of Pennsylvania. Zimbra powers the email systems for over 300 universities worldwide. That comes in around an impressive 1.5 million email addresses ending in “.edu”.
