What e-mail server to use other than MS Exchange?


Hi guys,

I am quite a newbie when it comes to running linux in server environments, but i have been quite succesfull in implementing linux (Mandrake mostly) as web, file and DC servers.

Now I would like to switch over to linux for my e-mail servers as well. I run a business where most of my clients are a bit stingy (understatement) and don't really want to pay the costly and highly overpriced M$ prices.

Most of them have been using MS Exchange, and like the functionality it provides with regards to: Well, basically everything.

Is there a li(u)nix based server app that i can use that will provide the same client/server (groupware) type of environment, and wich will provide for MS Outlook as a client?

Links would be greatly appreciated?!?!?!

Thanks all.

NICKOLSE

If you want an Exchange replacement, there is Ximian's Connector. Ximian was recently purchased by Novell. Here is a relevant press release: http://www.novell.com/news/press/arc...0/pr03067.html

Apparently, SuSE is also going after Exchange: http://www.techworld.com/news/index....ews&newsid=570
