PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - August 3, 2009) - The latest study by The Radicati Group, "Hosted Email Market, 2009-2013," offers an in-depth analysis of the worldwide market for both business and consumer hosted email solutions.

The study categorizes the Hosted Email market according to three segments: Hosted Business Email Providers, ISP/Webmail Providers, and Managed Email Providers. Microsoft Hosted Exchange is a rapidly growing sub-segment of the Hosted Business Email segment.

The economic downturn has brought renewed interest in Hosted Business Email services, as more businesses reassess their current email infrastructure in a desire to cut costs.
