There are _plans_ for Ximian Evolution to, some time in the _future_,
"eventually grok" MS-Exchange, but those plans have not yet come to
Furthermore, those plans _do not_ involve an "open source" piece of
software; the software that is intended to do the "grokking"
apparently won't be licensed under the GPL or any other "free
I'm not sure I can quite fathom how large
Evolution+"Exchange-Communicator-Thingie" would be.
# apt-get install evolution
reports that the Evolution package (and _nothing else_!) would eat up
some 107MB of disk space. That doesn't include any Gnome libraries or
the likes; as I have Galeon and GnuCash installed, I have a pretty
substantial set of those.
I'm not quite sure I can comprehend how a mail client should consume
that much disk space. I seem to recall there being some adage about
every program at MIT expanding to include a mail client. (Take a look
at "GNU Hello" some time :-).)
Evolution seems to have started out as an email client, and, just
barely out of "alpha" stage, is bigger than such fabulously
sophisticated and complex programs as GCC, GNU Emacs, and such. I
don't think it's scriptable yet; it'll doubtless grow further when
I found out why cats drink out of the toilet. My mother told me it's
because it's cold in there. And I'm like: How did my mother know THAT?
I'm trying to find a free and open source equivalent or alternative to
MS Exchange. All clients are running the latest version of Novell
Evolution. I need the ability to manage e-mail, calendars, tasks, and
The ability to schedule group meetings would be a bonus.
I've been looking at opengroupware, but it doesn't seem to support the
latest version of Evolution as a client - and this is a must for me.
Thanks in advance!
