Exchange alternative


Does anyone know of a good alternative solution to M$ Exchange that can be run of a linux server?

I've had a quick look round, and the closest i can find is one called SamsungContact... but i thought i'd ask the question to see what feedback i get.

Thanks

Roland

the usual, all of what you suggested, with things like shared calendars, mail folders etc, it must also work with the client being Outlook.

Oh, and it needs to have a web interface too!

Thanks

Then the list above should work fine.

The calandering doesn't interface with Outlook but it is good for shared calendars.

do a search on Google. if that fails, do a search on Slashdot. This has been discussed numerous times, you are guaranteed to find the solution your are looking for, and all of the calendaring features will work.

I have run, Kerio mailserver.
It has 2 rpms, the server, and the graphical admin config tool. Worked without fail for me... I just had to launch the admin tool and set it up. It does not use the system userlist though. You have to set up each user (mailbox) seperate from the system.
