The Outlook/Exchange Combination Getting Competition?

Tuesday, December 17, 2002  

It looks like there are finally some open source challenges to Microsoft's Outlook/Exchange combination. On the client side, Ximian Inc. is offering a Linux client with a connector to Exchange that would get rid of Outlook on the desktop. With OpenOffice it's possible to get rid of the Microsoft Office suite (approx. $300 per desktop). On the server side there I have found the Bynari, Inc. InsightServer that looks like it's attempting to be a credible alternative to Exchange.

We have a business need that might be able to use the combination of these products. Assuming I can get it put together, look for more information in this blog.
