I need your help for the next thing.
Thx to you all.





Question about  hosting multiple domains on a mail server is been asked many times.
But still is need a more clear answer.
Most of the company's are using exchange because of outlook.
The user wants outlook and his functionality, what's behind they dont care of course.
What I want is exchange like product who offers to host multiple domains.
Each domain must be compleatly separated from the other.
A user who log
es in with his outlook mapi client must only see names from his own domain, read company.
I would be a little strange to see names of other company's. I time ago there was a exchange like solutions, its now bought by cisco.

If you want the functionality of Exchange, then you need a hosting solution. Your best option is to find a white label hosting provider, and use that. Setting up a hosted solution is complex and expensive, requiring different licenses for Exchange and Windows, additional hardware etc. Microsoft actually state that unless you are going to host 10,000 mailboxes, it is more cost effective to use someone else.

Thanks Simon.

Sorry my English is poor, so my question was not clearly I Think.
Because of financial reason MS Exchange is out of the question. Its also a  complex thing to make Exchange so that multipe company's can use it as mail server.When each company must be in his own enviroment, for example adresbook. Therefor I'am searching voor linux based solutions, compatible with outlook.

There are very few open source based solutions that are compatible with Outlook and give you the full Outlook experience. Zimbra I think is the only one, but finding skills to set it up and manage it will be hard as it is a niche product.
The cheapest way is to use someone else for the solution.
