I'm not sure I understand, OWA runs in a web browser, you want to know which web browser you can run on AIX so you can access OWA? Firefox should do just fine in that case.

No, I am looking a browser based email solution similar to OWA, that runs on AIX.

The link refers to installing a p7 system with HMC. Nothing to do with browser based email.

I'm thinking of Lotus Notes (web client), or AtMail. Do you want an open source (free) solution or is there a budget?

carlmdAuthor Commented:
It can be purchased, but do not want to change from using sendmail. Prefer to stay away from Lotus/Domino solution. Preferably a third party solution that is a "drop in" like java or perl that will work directly via the web server.

Do you want a webmail client only or full mail server that sends and receives mails?

carlmdAuthor Commented:
Just a browser based client to work with sendmail as the server.

We have one now, but it is old (10 years) and clunkey to use.

Sendmail does not serve mailboxes to users. You need some pop3/imap server like dovecot, and probably replace sendmail with postfix to not have all users as system users.

We currently use pop3 and imap servers that are supplied with AIX. Don't need or want anything else on top of that.

We have all the pieces in place, just want a new web based email client that looks like OWA.

"that looks like owa"
Rip images from particular OWA version and make a skin and apply to roundcube or squirrelmail.

I was hoping to not have to do something like that by looking for a web client that already has those features. Thats why I posted the question, to see if anyone was aware of such.

Come on, microsoft graphics "like OWA" are copyright
Both webmail clients run on apache+php
You can look for some groupware suite if you prefer java

I get it, but before I go through the trouble of doing this myself, I wanted to explore the options regarding a "packaged" solution. Like I said, we have one now that is old and no longer supported on AIX. Thought their might be something else available.

gheistCommented:
Roundcube you just unzip into php-enabled apache directory, it needs some minor tweaks like default imap server and you are all set.

Not the answer I hoped for, but I guess there is nothing out there that will do what I want out of the box.

Will probably use of the above suggested solutions and modify as needed.

thanks...

It could happen that some webmail suite defaults to localhost and work out of the box
