French Ministry of Agriculture Switches to Mozilla Mail

Thursday September 11th, 2003

Hervé, Bruno and Pierre from the French MozillaZine write: "The MozillaZine-FR staff are pleased to announce that the French Ministry of Agriculture has chosen Mozilla Mail for replacing Netscape Messenger 4.7. Outlook and Netscape 7 have been considered, but Mozilla has been preferred for its immunity to viruses and its licensing model. Tests have been run this Summer and Mozilla will be deployed in Q3 on every machine at the Ministry offices." MozillaZine-FR has a French article about the switch.

"As for this news I think it's great, although the sad thing is it probably will make a large impact on total usage of Mozilla mail; since on the one hand I'm sure that's a big government department, and on the other hand I think the vast majority of people who use Mozilla as a browser do not use Mozilla for mail, making the mail 'market share' much smaller than the just-about-respectable browser market-share..."

Funny, I use Mozilla only for mail and FB for browsing. Just waiting for TB getting stable enough to be my preferred mail client.
