Contrary to the specs, the client doesn't run on RedHat 6.2 - yeah, I 
know I should upgrade it, but it works and is reliable ...

It does however run on Suse (OpenLinux 1 which underlies Suse Linux 
OpenXchange Server) with manual installation and the addition of a 
few links to make thing appear to be in the right place (I don't know 
the details, someone else installed it for me).

This is just one of 'a few' feature requests and bug reports I have 
in with Dantz at the moment.
