It is headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and was founded in 2007 by Steve Smith and Francois Lane.[2] Aside from developing email marketing software, the company also creates automated processes that identify, target and delete spammers from their databases while notifying other core data providers.

In 2008, the grassroots movement "An Obama Minute" led by Scott Cohen selected Cakemail as their email marketing application, calling on the team to create a semi-custom solution.[6][7]

In 2012, Cakemail started offering its services to and web hosting services through integration with cPanel and Parallels Automation.[9]

In May 2012, Cakemail was interviewed by the CTV Television Network for insight as to how Canada's anti-spam legislation, bill C-28, affects companies outside of Canada.[10]
