Have a look at
It's actually just a bunch of standard, good open-source components
(Postfix, Apache, Cyrus IMAP, OpenLDAP, OpenSSL) preconfigured to work
well with one another, plus a couple of proprietary components: YaST2
for graphical administration, and SkyrixGreen for integrated scheduling
and group discussions.
Usually, when you're trying to convince pointy-hairs to use a Unix mail
solution, they instead drag you onto Exchange Server to get its
scheduling, group discussions, and perceived "integration". The SuSE
bundle seems designed to overcome the management-moron syndrome.
And you should point out that, unlike Exchange Server, the SuSE Linux
eMail Server (which is what they call it) won't corrupt its message
store a couple of times a year.
Cheers, Long ago, there lived a creature with a
Rick Moen voice like a vacuum cleaner. We know little
rick at linuxmafia.com about it, but we do know that it ate cats.
