The difference is due to the low-paid or no-cost mailboxes that exist within the service. When the installed base has been calculated by companies such as Radicati Group in the past, they came up...

Do the ex-Acompli now Outlook clients really compromise security or is everyone overreacting? Commented on: 4 weeks ago (January 30, 2015)
