[TriLUG] I see an exchange server in my future

I just performed an evaluation for my school district, looking at Kerio
MailServer (the incumbent and winner), MS Exchange, CommuniGate, Gordano,
Zimbra Collaboration Suite, OpenXchange and one other.  I've also used
GroupWise, which is pretty good.  Our issues were performance, client
hardware requirements, integration with PDAs and support for the many Apple
machines in use.  Straight Outlook integration is easy with most of these,
and Kerio MailServer 6.2 works well, is cheap, supports many OS's.  Kerio
has a few problems, but its cheapness overcomes them.  Hope this helps!

Regards, Jim

Subject: [TriLUG] I see an exchange server in my future

It appears that there will an Exchange Server in my future. The boss man 
is wedded/addicted to Outlook and cannot be separated from it.
I have been looking around for an Open Source alternative to avoid 
feeding the Evil Empire of Redmond, WA.

My initial search has come up with several candidates such as 
Exchange4Linux, OpenXchange and OpenGroup.

Can anyone suggest to me other alternatives or provide additional input?

The platform will most likely be Ubuntu.

Thanks in advance,
