Yahoo acquires e-mail search company

Posted on Sunday, October 24 2004 @ 13:23:00 CEST by

Yahoo has snapped up privately-held e-mail software company Stata Labs, which develops technology that allows users to quickly search through mail and attachments. The move generated speculation that the Internet powerhouse is gearing up to take on Google's Gmail Webmail service, which features broad capabilities to search e-mail messages.

San Mateo, California-based Stata offered an e-mail client called Bloomba, which allows users to manage and organize multiple e-mail accounts, search through mail, and even save searches as views.

Further details of the transaction were not disclosed.
