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.

all the more since a vast majority of administrations and government services still use communicator's 4 e-mail client on Netscape servers. If they follow the trend and migrate, it will be on dozen thousands of computers ;-) snowball effect : it may turn these office users into Mozilla home users :-D That's what I call a pleasant news
