PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - August 5, 2008) - The Radicati Group, Inc.'s latest study, "EMEA Hosted Email Market, 2008-2012," provides an in-depth look at all segments of the European hosted email market, including: ISP/Webmail Providers, Hosted Business E-mail Providers, and Managed Business E-mail Providers.

According to the study, the installed base of hosted email mailboxes in Europe is expected to grow from 375M mailboxes in 2008, to 542M mailboxes by 2012. Growth in this market is driven by increased broadband Internet availability across the region and particularly in Eastern Europe. The SMB sector, as well as organizations of any size that are looking for cost effective email are increasingly considering hosted business email solutions. This is reinforced by the increased competition in this space from Google and Microsoft, as well as decreasing prices.

Hosted business email solutions based on Microsoft Hosted Exchange Server are also growing in popularity, often offering a range of value-added features such as archiving, security, and wireless email.
