Have a look at Openmail for a true plugin replacement for Exchange.
HP discontinued it officially last year, but interestingly enough Samsung
taken over development, here's a link to the story.
I'm not sure what pricing will be like, but I would imagine it wouldn't be
beat Exchange for value.... ;)
If you're tied to Outlook on the desktop, maybe give Bynari's Insight
look, it's supposed to allow you to do all the groupware functions on an
server, pretty neat as this allows you to potentially look at other mail
once you have the server side sorted out.
Note: I have only tested Openmail, that was around 12 months ago, I haven't
the Bynari software so can't comment on how good it really is, however in
of Linux mailing lists I'm on it has been mentioned a number of times.
Couple of other links to back up your arguments:
This is somewhat off topic, but since everyone here is probably interested
in the topic, I thought Id ask.
Im looking for a replacement for Exchange that will run on a Linux box.
Preferably, it would support all the features of Exchange, but I realize
thats probably not possible. If anyone knows of a package like this for
Linux, let me know. Id like to get our network away for the Small Business
Server that were using now. The licences are ludicrous. (We just spent $700
for 10 licences. And theyre taking 2 weeks to get the to us.)
