PROFS Born

IBM launched its mainframe-based email system, PROFS, in 1980. During the 1980s, PROFS was probably the most widely used email product, closely trailed by Digital’s ALL-IN-1.

With the rise of PC email, which was far less expensive to own and operate, PROFS gradually declined.–David Ferris, with thanks to Amy Wohl
