(SF Gate) – Amazon.com Inc. is starting an e-mail and calendar service for professionals dubbed WorkMail, pushing deeper into a corporate technology market dominated by Microsoft Corp. and Google Inc.

WorkMail would compete with Microsoft’s Outlook and Google’s Apps for Work to become a daily point of contact between Amazon and customers. It builds on the technical capabilities the Seattle company has developed through its Amazon Web Services cloud-computing division, through which Amazon also offers a file-storage service named Zocalo and databases like Amazon Aurora.

The worldwide market for cloud-based e-mail services was worth $6.3 billion in annual sales in 2014, and will increase to an estimated $16.9 billion by 2018, according to a report by the Radicati Group Inc., a market research firm.
