Email hosting has become one of the most commonly used forms of communication technology in the industry as providers allow for premium email services along with custom configurations and a large number of accounts.
TMCnet was there this week to report on all the latest email hosting news. Here are a few highlights:
Unroll.me, an email hosting program that organizes and prioritizes email inboxes, recently revealed that its solution is ideal to manage holiday email overload, TMCnet reported.
Newly released reports anticipate that later this year there will be an increase in online holiday shopping, which will ultimately increase the amount of emails individuals are sending and receiving.
According to findings, online holiday shopping is expected to increase by 17 percent this year, creating more email clutter than usual.
Josh Rosenwald, founder of Unroll.me, said that it seems that the holiday season begins to clutter the inboxes sooner and with much higher volume each year. “This year, I hope users try Unroll.me as it is a simple and easy solution to keeping yourself organized throughout the holidays and as we enter the New Year,” Rosenwald said in a statement.
In other email hosting news, Veeam Software, a provider of email hosting and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Windows Server Hyper-V, recently unveiled the latest version of its Veeam Backup & Replication solution, which will be available in Q4 2012, TMCnet reported.
In a statement, Veeam President and CEO Ratmir Timashev said, “Veeam’s agentless backup and replication solution is specifically built for virtualization. It was once considered niche, but now is the mainstream as virtualization itself.”
Version 6.5 of the Veeam Backup & Replication offering encompasses new restore capabilities for Microsoft Exchange, HP StoreVirtual VSA and LeftHand snapshots.
As frequently reported, Office 2013 products are being touted as the “most ambitious release of Office we’ve ever done.” The much-hyped features of the next-generation Office solutions, however, are not quite available to the mainstream public. But in order to entice vendors who are buying Microsoft’s (News - Alert) 2010 products for the first time, these people will be guaranteed a free upgrade when it is available, sometime in “mid-November.”
This November will also be the when Office 365 will undergo its next series of updates, TMCnet reported.
In fact, starting Oct. 26, a preview of the Office 2013 Home and Student versions will be offered to those who purchased Windows RT devices. Additionally, certain other subscribers will get to sample features of the new Office 2013 before the general public.
