[Samba] Exchange Replacement (OT)

I have tried it and I was not very impresses. It's features were good by the
way it handled the syncronisation and it's reliability was poor.

If you selected a folder which contained say 1000 entries it would
syncronise to it in the background. If you then selected another folder it
would add that to the queue to syncronise but after it finished it would
crash outlook. Then due to it's flawed syncronisation method when you
reconnected it would download the whole lot again resulting in duplicates.

Some emails (about 1 in 100 from this list) produce errors and it won't
import them.

It doesn't use the IMAP features. So for example if you reply or mark an
email read it is not marked as such on the IMAP server.

    This is somewhat off topic, but since everyone here is probably
interested in the topic, I thought I’d ask.

    I’m 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 that’s probably not possible. If anyone knows of a package like this
for Linux, let me know. I’d like to get our network away for the Small
Business Server that we’re using now. The licences are ludicrous. (We just
spent $700 for 10 licences. And they’re taking 2 weeks to get the to us.)
