Novell is the latest Lotus rival to launch a bid to poach cc:Mail users, slashing 60 per cent off prices of its Groupwise messaging product.
The promotion is also targeted at Microsoft Mail users.
Peter Joseph, Novell?s market development manager, said: ?Eighty per cent of cc:Mail and MS Mail users use Netware as their network operating environment, so the change to Groupwise would be easier than moving to Microsoft Exchange, which would require an upgrade to NT.?
As part of the Groupwise package, Novell is offering a runtime licence of Netware, plus gateways for cc:Mail, MS Mail, Lotus Notes and Microsoft Exchange.
Yesterday Microsoft acquired Mesa Group, developer of Notes-to-Exchange migration tools and services, also in a bid to lure Lotus customers (see Newswire 29 April).
According to IDC, there are 14 million cc:Mail users around the globe, compared to 10.5 million Groupwise users.
