Question Replacing Windows AND Novell?


I have recently converted to the SUSE operating environment as a server platform for web-applications (obvious) and, via SAMBA, as an office file/print server.

I am now trying to extend the services offered by the SUSE server (v8.2) and am considering using it to replace our Novell GroupWise environment.

I am happy with Outlook 2000 as an email client but I do NOT want to replace Novell with Microsoft Back-Office.

What options do I have with SUSE 8.2?

We are technically competent here but are not yet SUSE-Gurus by any stretch of the imagination so.... "be gentle".

From what I hear, you sound like the perfect candidate for this:

I don't know if you have experience with Domino/Lotus Notes given that you are using GroupWise as your groupware application.

I have used Domino/Lotus Notes and let me tell you this: It rocks!!!!

If you like all the features and capabilities of MS. Outlook client, and don't mind a commercial replacement for exchange, you may want to check out Bynari's Insight server and InsightConnector

Each of these option involve spending money with proprietory authors along with all the risks and costs that entails; is there not a list of open source components that will do the job?

I haven't done a corporate rollout of any Linux solutions, I just remembered reading about that Bynari thing last year... For my domains, I use Postfix. I have my machine running SMTP, POP3, and IMAP. I've moved all the old mail from my .PST file into my IMAP folders so I have access to them through Outlook, any IMAP compliant client, or Web based front-ends. If you rely on the ability to share personal calendars, I'm not sure what options there are since I've not been required to implement such a solution on open source yet.

I don't know what options you have in the freeware market, but as for your initial question:

I found this option from SuSE themselves:

I have never used it...saw a demo in CeBIT which looked pretty cool...:-)
