I saw this yesterday - it's pretty big news.  I'm an AppRiver partner and I know a great number of agencies use them for a number of products - most of them for the secure email offering - which I have a love/hate relationship with.  I can only imagine they will replace the secure email offering they have now with Zix down the road.

Thanx for sharing Mark and I'm right there with you Tom.

I made mention to our Accounting Manager and Principal yesterday that we may see the AppRiver name go away in a couple, three years.

This is only speculation, but I think Zix bought AppRiver because of their relationships with the 4000 service providers like me.  That's 4000 more people to sell and support their product.
