Re: [Evolution] Which non-Microsoft server to build?

Hi Eric,

ClearOS iMAP/SSL works transparently and very well on Evolution (or any
other client I've tried). There are many solutions that allow
iMap/POP/SMTP integration.  The problem is that Exchange seems to be the
only option if you also want contacts/memos/calendars etc.

since I use POP for my other accounts.

My problem is that I cannot find any client that will integrate and give
me contacts/calendar as well as the basic IMAP/SMTP/POP.

Does Zafara make this bridge?  If so, how?

I have sent an email off to Zafara sales asking for more info.  Thx!

Have you looked at Zarafa? ClearOS integrates it into its structure.

Does anyone know of the RIGHT server to give me the collaboration

Zimbra?  Scalix?  I don't mind PAYING... I just want a tool that works.
