We too are looking at the possibility of moving away from the MS Exchange
platform. I have not spent much time looking at the opensource/linux
options. Openexchange looked very good, and yes it uses the ximian plugin to
allow outlook access. Whilst I am always looking at the price - for us its
not the overriding factor. We need a messaging platform that allows easy
sharing of knowledge contained within those emails, meetings and tasks.
Exchange locks all this away. From initial glances, cyrus does the same.

I would be interested in what you find out from your testing.....

Subject: OT: Linux Exchange Server

Sorry for the OT post, but I wanted to solicit some informed opinions and
couldn't think of a better group...

I was wondering what experiences anyone has had with some of the 3rd-party
MS Exchange Server simulators for Linux.  We evaluated a couple of solutions
about a year ago without going very far with it, but are going to be
revisiting the subject for a new client.  (Have you seen Exchange Server
2003 CAL costs?!)  In the past, OpenExchange looked very attractive, but we
don't have any practical experience with it.

Anyhow, if anyone can offer any personal experience with OpenExchange or any
of the other products (off-list if you like) I would appreciate it!
