The 20,000 Milestone

I just wanted to quickly announce that we hit quite a major company milestone here at Webmail this past Wednesday. While it took us several years get the first 10,000 businesses to sign up for our email hosting services, it took just six months to sign the next 10,000. In other words, we now host email for more than 20,000 businesses worldwide!
I won’t go into too much more detail than that. If you’re interested, here is the press release we issued this morning.
Special thanks go out to all of our employees who continue to work so hard as well as our customers that continue to believe in us and appreciate the services we provide.
