Web Hosting ServicesSHOREVIEW, Minn. – Hostopia, a Deluxe (NYSE: DLX) company and leading provider of web services for small and medium-sized businesses, was awarded the 2009 Marketing Innovation Award by the Broadband Multimedia Marketing Association (BMMA).  Hostopia received the award for its new migration technology, called SNAP.

SNAP is a new technology developed and deployed by Hostopia to help Internet service providers migrate e-mail users to new platforms. The technology specifically eliminates the risks of service interruption, e-mail content errors and the end-user churn that can result from these common migration issues.

“Seamless Internet and e-mail performance is critical to our small and mid-sized business customers,” said Dave Murphy, vice president, marketing, Hostopia. “We built SNAP to protect their experience and it is an honor to be recognized for the innovation.”

“The BMMA recognized SNAP because it is a mass mail migration solution that greatly minimizes impact on the service provider and its e-mail customers,” said Ellis Hill, BMMA executive director.

Hostopia has used SNAP to successfully migrate more than 100,000 e-mail accounts across 34,000 domains, totaling more than 5 Terabytes of e-mail data from a variety of legacy e-mail platforms operated by to Hostopia’s EasyMail platform, featuring WebMail 6.0. Hostopia is currently in discussion with a number of other large service providers to migrate their e-mail platforms using SNAP.
