Copernica's CTO and co-founder Emiel Bruijntjes originally created MailerQ because he was not impressed by the existing open source MTA solutions. Copernica needed a straightforward, easy to configure and scalable alternative. Although it was never the intention to commercialize the MTA, MailerQ turned out to be so much better than the open source and commercial alternatives, that it was decided to offer it to other companies too.
Copernica was founded in 2000 by Michael Linthorst and Emiel Bruijntjes and is based in Amsterdam.
