("RedChip") to lead its public and investor relations efforts. SMTP and RedChip are expected to finalize a written agreement regarding RedChip's engagement by SMTP shortly.

Semyon Dukach, SMTP's Chairman, stated, "Having firsthand experience presenting at a RedChip conference, I am confident in RedChip's ability to lead our investor outreach efforts. With a robust communications platform and proven track record of delivering effective investor relations campaigns, I believe RedChip's platform is the best in the industry for emerging growth companies such as ours.

"The global commercial email market is estimated at $2 billion in sales," stated Dave Gentry, President and CEO of RedChip. "SMTP is a leader in email delivery services, the largest & fastest-growing segment of email marketing."

Mr. Gentry continued, "SMTP has a consistent record of growing revenues and earnings, and services a wide base of long-term recurrent customers, with no significant concentration of sales in any single customer. Management has successfully balanced growth investment initiatives while instilling a quarterly dividend plan to reward shareholders. These factors, and the Company's history of growth and profitability, position SMTP to deliver substantial shareholder value, particularly in terms of risk-adjusted returns."
