recognize that the ONLY groupware solution that I am aware of that
allows both Evolution and Outlooks fat clients is Novell's groupwise and
that probably is dependent upon at least Evolution 2.2.x (FC-4 or newer)
and Evolution is PITA to build separately since it really is entirely
bundled into gnome.

Once you have conceded the ground to Outlook as the fat client for
Windows, the groupware solutions vary in terms of the amount of features
that Outlook can utilize AND you must purchase the client connectors for

While it appears that Kronolith (Horde's calendaring software) is web
only, it is capable of some interaction with other clients and they are
doing their best to support calendaring standards of which there really
aren't any. I think it is possible to use sunbird and other clients that
utilize icalendar format.
