MS Outlook equiv for Linux?


If I could find something to read my PST files, then I could ditch windows at work, which would be good because i am sooo bored of mircosoft.



cheers all

I don't really know what PST files are, but I do know you can use Mozillla Mail or KMail. I prefer KMail, as it is nicely integrated with KDE.
I heard Evolution was an OE workalike .. and that it ran on linux.
But is it free? http://www.ximian.com/products/evolution/

a) i don't think there's a mail prog for linux that will read outlook pst files.

b) oh please oh please don't make an outlook clone for linux.

c) just for your info, im using netscape mail on linux


as an afterthought, why not try webmail for exchange, i can read my MS mail through the web perfectly.

My boss is having serious difficulty keeping his MS Outlook offline storage file synchronized with his account on our MS Exchange 2000 Server. Ximian Evolution / Connector appears to only offer on-line access to Exchange - does anybody know of a *NIX based product similar to MS Outlook that offers on-line access AND synchronization of folders to permit off-line access?
