Thank you John, for that kind introduction. I am looking forward to working with WISPA and supporting the members of the association. While I have not operated or worked for a WISP, there are many of the same issues I once had when operating our dialup ISP. If I may, I would like to provide a little background history of how we got started with Postini. In early 2003 a few of our old ISP domains were getting hit with direct harvest - DHA's and were bogging down the shared servers were we using. In all, there were only 3 emails that covered those domains, but in the past some 225k mailboxes were used. Apparently, email accounts take a while to die out as well as the spammers hitting anything they can find. The server was seeing some 50-100k SMTP attempts and our host provider asked that we move those domains to a dedicated box with some edge filtering. Since adding another appliance would not solve the bandwidth issue, it would also be another point of failure to potentially contend with. I called Postini and took a test drive and was pleased with the results. Just before our 30-day trial was just about to run out, our Postini representative asked if I would be willing to become a Postini Partner in reselling their services to companies like ours and other ISP, Webhosts etc. I said why not and took the challenge. Now fast forward 3-1/2 years and I feel we are at the right time and place to venture out beyond our normal sales channel and go directly to the market. I sincerely hope that I can be helpful to the members of WISPA, not only in providing a service, but in also providing any of my own experience or empirical knowledge. Postini may not be the right for everyone, but you also may have other customers looking for options and Postini may just be the right fit. Postini is easy to monetize additional revenue because of its structure of an outsourced solution. I will be talking more about these benefits in the weeks and months ahead.
