Sendmail offers mainframe-oriented promo

Sendmail, an Emeryville, Calif., company that sells support for and additions to the open-source Sendmail software, has begun offering a promotional program of support for the e-mail software running on IBM's Z/90 mainframe computers, the company said Tuesday. IBM has been advocating the use of the Linux operating system on its mainframes, in part so that common software packages such as Sendmail can be used instead of expensive mainframe-specific software. Under the company's early support program, customers may purchase software at a discount and get free installation and configuration services. The promotion ends in the third quarter, when the general release of the mainframe version of Sendmail is expected to ship.
