    Exchange replacement


    Hi,

    Just installed KNOPPIX on my USB key, persistent mode.

    Youuuuuuuuuppppiiii!!!!

    I was just wondering if there's an equivalent to Microsoft Exchange (Outlook). See I want to be able to use a KNOPPIX tool to download, read and sent Email through our Exchange server at the office.

    I really want to step away from Microsoft products Smile

    Thanks,

    Marc.

    I believe you can use the Evolution mail client to support Exchange. There are other decent clients like Kmail and Mozilla Thunderbird but I'm not sure about Exchange support for them.

    I don't know about Knoppix but in the distros I've used, Evolution doesn't support Exchange right out of the box. You have to install the Exchange plugin. I think it used to be called evolution-exchange but I noticed in Fedora 7, they had it named evolution-connector. See if you can't find one of those.

    Knoppix is based on Debian so it uses apt-get as its package manager. I'm not sure what packages are available in the repositories but try executing
    Code:
    apt-get install evolution evolution-connector
    as root. Or it might already be installed on your system, if so just run
    Code:
    evolution
