By leaps and bounds, SoftArc Inc. has gobbled up market share in the growing electronic messaging industry. SoftArc reports that, according to both Electronic Mail & Messaging Systems (EMMS) and Electronic Messaging News, the Ontario company is the number four provider of LAN-based email, with its FirstClass email and conferencing software. There are officially over three million FirstClass users now, compared to 1.4 million just six months ago. CE Software's QuickMail and Lotus Notes, two products considered leading contenders for the email market, are in sixth and seventh place, respectively, according to EMMS. SoftArc is also credited with a 500 percent growth in installed users over the fifteen months ending in March. [MHA]
