Maktoob appoints Mirapoint to manage e-mail service

Maktoob has selected Mirapoint to support its increasing base of email subsribers using its turnkey solutions for message routing, switching and storage.

In order to manage its ever-expanding email base—currently standing at half a million—Maktoob.com has selected UK-based Mirapoint products to support its communications systems.

"We decided on Mirapoint because it specialises in messaging solutions, which is our core business. We needed a powerful, fault-tolerant system that offered seamless management, especially because we are hundreds of miles away, and did not want to worry about potential hardware and software problems," said Samih Toukan, managing partner of the Jordanian-based Maktoob.

Mirapoint's complete turnkey solutions provide next-generation messaging using purpose-built solutions for message routing, switching, and storage. Each server used by Maktoob has the capacity to support some 250,000 users.

According to Mirapoint, its products are built as appliances, as they avoid the complexity of the traditional component hardware and software approach, thereby ensuring that the required in-house e-mail expertise and management costs are exceptionally low.

"Mirapoint's servers provide Maktoob with the industry's most scaleable and reliable messaging solutions. Maktoob wanted an IMAP (Internet Mail Access Protocol) mail store that could work in a remote location, needed little administration, and had low total cost of ownership. The Mirapoint solution covers all these areas," said Joerg Bonarius, Mirapoint's EMEA marketing director.
