Alternatives to Outlook and Entourage as Exchange clients
Posted on 2007-04-05
I have small network of 20 PCs and 2 iMacs on a Windows 2003 domain. The PCs are all Windows 2000. I'm using Exchange 2003 on one DC and Outlook 2003 on the PCs and Entourage on the Macs, although the Macs could use Outlook in a Windows 2000 window under Parallels.
I'm not at all enamoured about what I read about the hardware requirements for Vista and know that if I stick with the Windows platform I'll be pushed into Vista simply because at some time MS will end support for 2K.
As I contemplate changing platforms one of my questions is what to use as an email client. Is there anything - anything - that will run natively under Mac OS X or any flavor of Linux that will function as an Exchange client?
If not, that opens up a whole new can of worms. I've no experience with anything that does what Exchange does. What else is there and are their guides to converting?
