Specific financial terms were not disclosed yesterday.
Under terms of the deal, Dell, Round Rock, Texas plans to sell three versions of its two-processor PowerEdge 2450 server with the e-mail software pre-installed later in the first quarter of this year. Sendmail, Emeryville, CA, will get part of the revenue from each server sale.
Dell said it will offer a pre-configured server that can support up to 4,000 mailboxes, one supporting 8,000 mailboxes and one supporting 15,000 mailboxes.
Sendmail's Advanced Messaging Server e-mail hosting software is built on Red Hat Linux and is aimed at small- to mid-sized Internet service providers and businesses seeking to host their own e-mail systems.
