Re: Exchange server replacement

Yes Scalix www.scalix.com is also based on HP Openmail and they are willing
to talk.
Scalix is the only viable remaining MAPI based email server software. If you
really want true Outlook compatability then this will work. Outlook also
supports POP and IMAP standards. You loose a LOT of the functionality that
Outlook can offere when you use Outlook in these modes which is why Sendmail
IMAP and webmin is as good as any.

Not true.

There is a third product, Stalker Software's CommuniGate Pro, which works
well with Outlook as a client. Been around for a long time, solid, stable,
and well-supported. It is also commercial, but they have pricing for
smaller setups that (while not cheap) is much lower than Exchange's, and I
would expect a lot easier administration.

CommuniGate Pro is available as a fully-functional free (gratis) download,
with the tiny price that it adds a one-line promo for itself on emails you
send. That one line goes away if/when you pay for a license, so you can
install and use it for free, then if you really like it and you really hate
that one line then you can pay for it.

Also note that Samsung Contact flat-out told me recently that if I didn't
have 500 users or more they weren't interested in selling me a copy AT ALL,
since they want to refocus on the Enterprise market. They simply refused to
sell me a copy for 25 users.
