Which mail server / client combo?
I'm managing the IT side of things for my company. We currently run a rather old version of MS Exchange, using Outlook as clients. For a bunch of reasons I'm looking at converting to a linux server setup but I must admit I'm a bit stumped as to which way to go.
Currently we've got around 30 mail boxes varying in size from 100Meg to 1.6Gig. We also have a global Address List of around 600 addresses which we rely on very heavily. We use some basic calendaring functions, but not really extensivly (allthough it would be great to expand on this)
I'm extremly keen for managment of address lists to be very accessible as that's generally done by admin folk rather than IT support. I'm also very interested in products that have MySQL support as we make a lot of use of MySQL for our contatc database.
In terms of client - I'm happy to lose Outlook, but if we can keep it it does make the transition a tad simpler..... whatever's going to work out best really.
That more or less sums it up. I'm really interested in any thoughts anyone has on LInux based mail servers with relation to what I've mentioned. Or better yet, if there's some articles anyone knows of comparing / discussing mail servers, I'd love to have the link.
Any thoughts would be highly appreciated.
