Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:03 am

Dell Inc said on Tuesday it will buy business e-mail services provider MessageOne Inc, which was co-founded by Michael Dell’s brother, aiming to compete with similar service provided by Microsoft Corp and Google Inc.

The $155 million cash deal is the computer maker’s latest in a recent wave of acquisitions ranging from small shops like software company Everdream to Dell’s $1.4 billion purchase in November of network storage provider EqualLogic.

MessageOne’s software, which is delivered to customers over the Internet, helps companies manage and archive e-mail, minimize outages and prevent data losses, Dell said in a statement.
