Many organizations currently use Outlook and Exchange as their mail client/server combination. Because of the tight coupling between these two pieces of software, it is believed these systems lock out users of
operating systems that cannot run Outlook. This belief is especially
strong if collaboration features such as group calendaring are used.
We will explore how Outlook and Exchange interact and discuss how
open source mail clients can leverage this information. Specifically,
we describe our experiences integrating an open source webmail client, Squirrelmail, into a Microsoft server environment, without sacrificing
features like group calendaring and global address books.
