    NetMail doesn't have a specific OutLook connector. It support OutLook via POP and IMAP.

    I *think* that the GroupWise Exchange Gateway will function as an Outlook connector. But don't quote me. Also, there is a GroupWise Plug-In for Outlook. I've never used it, so i can't give you a review - I avoid OutLook like the plague it is.

    What's the specific functionality you're after? "Outlook Connector" is a bit diffuse to me.

    Vantana,

    You did not specify a "free" package. All you asked for was a package with a free "Outlook connector", whatever that is. I answered the Question you posed, not the one that you didn't pose.

    I don't think there is a totally free software package that offers the same level of functionality of a GroupWise or an Exchange. For that level of functionality, you're going to have to pay.

    Hi Vartana,
    Have you looked at Kolab? (http://kolab.org/)
    There are Outlook connectors listed for it aswell as native windows and Linux clients.

    The web client (http://kolab.org/webclient.html) is not finished yet.
    You can still use Squirrelmail etc...for access to email and the address book however.
