Hi!,

Quote:> Any linux/open-source mail clients that grok MS-exchange?

Exactally, what element do you want to connect to of Ms-Exchange?, do you want
to read and send mail, or do you want to be able to interface with all the
extra stuff that an exchange server offers like the calendar and contacts list
?

See ya

This must be some new verb tense of "grok;" I always thought that
"that grok" was in the present tense.

There are _plans_ for Ximian Evolution to, some time in the _future_,
"eventually grok" MS-Exchange, but those plans have not yet come to
fruition.

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
software" license.

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
that happens...

1. Open source MS Exchange-equivalent for Linux/Evolution...

Hi!

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
contacts.

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!
Cyp.
