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 does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
