Message Systems Acquires Port25

Message Systems, a leading provider of email software, announced today it has acquired Port25 Solutions in a stock and cash deal. The value of the deal was not disclosed.

As a provider of email infrastructure software, Port25 is in essentially the same business as Message Systems. Its Power MTA email server caters more to medium-sized businesses, however, and so widens the customer scope of Message Systems, whose products are used by enterprise-level businesses such as Epsilon, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

“This acquisition positions Message Systems to serve the email infrastructure needs of companies of all sizes—from developers at start-ups through to the world’s largest senders with both cloud and on-premise solutions,” said Phillip Merrick, CEO of Message Systems, in a press release announcing the acquisition.

Message Systems expressed that adding Port25 will position it as a worthy email software provider for companies of all types and sizes. “Previously, companies were forced to choose between low-cost and easy-to-use solutions and rich email infrastructure feature sets with performance and scalability,” said the release.
