Executive Summary: Evolution 1.2 with Exchange Connector
With Evolution 1.2, companies running Exchange can put Linux or Solaris on the desktop without worrying about how users will reach their mail, calendar, contacts, tasks and other key data, such as that stored in public calendars, folders and global address lists.
Evolution 1.2 is an open-source product and freely available from Ximian, among other places. The Connector software needed to enable access to Exchange is not: Ximian prices the Connector software reasonably, however, starting at $69 per seat.
(+) Fast searches and good filters; vFolder and filters saved as XML; improvements in stability and interface.
(-) No support for Exchange Journal and Notes functions; occasional hang-ups with Exchange connection; some configuration tasks are obscure.
