The Death of Bloomba

Postby tribble » Thu Oct 21, 2004 11:16 am

Don't know if you heard, but Yahoo purchased Stata Labs, the maker of Bloomba email and SAProxy for spam.

One less competitor to worry about :-)

I see it the other way. The more competitors the better. :)
(for both competition pressure and inspiration reasons...)

so... this has a reason i think.

bloomba has great search cababilities - the BEST i have seen in a mail client.
it´s search is really simple and fast.

so.. i think yahoo is searching for something to compete against the growing gmail services from google.

i think they will integrate the knowledge of statalabs into their webclients or something similar.

Doesn't Bloomba have desktop search capability too? I think this is Yahoo's response to the Google desktop search tool.

Not that I was aware of, I purchased Bloomba and used it for quite a while, but I had given up on it before it was taken over. Support was pretty good (I know, I posted more than a few problems :lol: ).

I have purchased copies of Bloomba, The Bat, Eudora and have used a few others, like Thunderbird.

We were Bloomba resellers

Postby hostricity » Wed Nov 24, 2004 6:04 pm

Bloomba was developing into a great mail client because of it excellent integration with SA-Proxy Pro (spam assassin) and because of its search capabilities.

There were two things about the search that were really great: It was fast and it would search attachments.

Another thing about Bloomba was that it allowed you to use the email client as permanent storage for email. In our business, that is really important because we need to easily access email that may be several years old when dealing with customer issues.

Yahoo purchased it for the search capabilities and shutdown the product. It will be around for quite a while though. I predict that you'll start seeing downloads with license keys popping up for download. It's sufficiently mature that it will be useful for at least a couple of years.

I'm still using Bloomba now and am looking for a replacement to resell and for our own use internally. That's how I came across Barca.
