Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

AFAIK, Ximian's Evolution would be your best bet. But you will need to run Ximian Connector as MS uses proprietary protocols for their mail clients and, again AFAIK, Linux clients don't natively connect. Head over to www.ximian.com to find out more. (Connector needs to be bought, btw).
No. Ximian Connector is a program which allows Linux clients to connect to MS Exchange. You do, however, need to have the web based email browsing enabled in Exchange - which means you need a licence for that (good ol' ms). Once done, that should allow you to connect.
we actually use ms-exchange with web enabled (SBS2000).
the real problem is, i use slackware 9.1 at the moment (soon slack 10). i would like to use some mail client with ms support, but ximian has no build (not supported) for slackware.
i could use wine with office2000 (maybe even XP), but i don't think that a real ms app is working fluently without problems on any linux. maybe it is the only way to use slackware and connect to ms-exchange.
1. i tried to install evolution (not working, get's no distro info), but it works with redhat (i tried it there too). on the Novell Evolution page is one link with the supportet linux/unix clients (slackware not on it).
2. groupwise or any other mailserver is not to consider, because we have SBS2000 (recently).
Do you HAVE to interface with the Exchange server via ExchangeAPI? Exchange does a very thorough job of supporting POP3 and IMAP. Both of which are supported in numerous mail clients. The only thing that really loses you is Calendaring and stuff.
Also you can very effectively set someone up through OWA (Outlook Web Access). It supports all the goodies that Outlook does and will run just fine under Mozilla or other Linux web browsers. This also lowers your cost of operation by removing one application that is not installed on the client. The client accesses his/her email via a common web browser.
i already know that, i'm using the webaccess, but i would prefer an email client locally. because then i can save my mail, contacts and other stuff for offline viewing (very important for me - have no internet for a while).
i also need the public folders and other exchange stuff (group calender, ...)
you know, evolution doesn't work on slackware!
i don't like to switch to redhat or suse, if you guys know some email client out there other than evolution, supporting ms exchange , i would be pleased to hear from it.
if there isn't one, i will try wine with ms office.
