FYI: All-inclusive messaging with Gordano

Peter Parker writes "Talk about not playing favorites. The messaging server from U.K.-based Gordano Ltd., called GMS v.10, plays with proprietary and open source operating systems alike. Windows, Linux, Unix, AIX, it doesn't matter -- Gordano is platform independent.

Gordano director John Stanners puts forth some impressive figures when he touts his companyâs product: the fact that it works with any OS, that it can be set up on a Linux box in 15 minutes or less and that it can migrate a clientâs e-mail platform from Microsoft Exchange to the Gordano Messaging Server (GMS) in about a minute. However, does this lightweight have the functionality and support to truly be able to send Exchange reeling?

In this interview with, Stanners gives some background on his company, founded in January 1994 as InternetShopper; and then delves into the fact that a code rewrite in 1999 transformed the companyâs product into the universal recipient of enterprise messaging clients it is today."
