HP seals open-source e-mail deal

Longtime Microsoft Exchange partner "going steady" with Sendmail.

Hewlett-Packard has signed an agreement to sell Sendmail's e-mail software, the latest move by the longtime Microsoft ally to also woo open-source players.

Under the agreement, announced Thursday, the computer maker may sell some of Sendmail's products, chiefly aimed at combating spam, with its ProLiant servers. The deal grew out of a narrower relationship, a joint marketing pact begun in 2001, said Greg Olson, executive vice president of business development for Sendmail.
