Just installed KNOPPIX on my USB key, persistent mode.
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
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.
I'm new to linux. Can you tell me where to get Evolution and how to install it.
