I'm looking for a MS Exchange type server - need advice
I'm looking for a replacement for MS Exchange server. I'm currently trying Zimbra out but it seems to be either web based or pop/imap. What I need is to be able to directly access the server from evolution. I need emails & contacts access, but calendar access is an optional requirement. <-- which would I select?
I have had a look at OX and it seems to do just this. But before I start uninstalling Zimbra and installing OX I want to be sure.
So 3 questions:
- Can this be done?
- How would I set up Evolution to access OX directly? I get this list on Evolution: Server type: Hula, IMAP, Microsoft Exchange, Novell Groupwise, POP, USNET News, Local Delivery, M-H format mail directories, Maildir format mail directories, standard unix mbox spool or directory.
- Or do I need to install something like the OXtender for MS Outlook
access mail by evolution
You can access the mail by imap and smtp when you use evolution.
So you need install open-xchange, postfix, imap, mysql .
But the calendar only can access by web (webdav), evolution can not
synchronous with open-xchane calendar. So you only can use the calendar on web.
If you want to get online help, you can add my msn: firstname.lastname@example.org
I will help you set up the server step by step.
