Hello

Has anyone had any experience with an Email Client on Terminal Services OTHER than Outlook?
We have Windows Server 2008 R2 with Exchange Server 2010.

Is there any option to outlook for the Mail Client?
(We could use the Webmail that comes with the Exchange Server but that's "Clunky")

Thanks

Is the aim to avoid using Microsoft Office at all on the Terminal Servers? If so you can look at using a combination of OpenOffice for documents and Thunderbird for emails.

If your users are only low-end users who aren't very adept with Office then this will suffice, however for the more advanced, tech-savvy users the experience may not be so great.

Don't expect all the features you would normally get with Outlook though in Thunderbird.

It's been a while but I had a Windows 2008 R2 server running Terminal Services for a client a few years ago.  I used Windows Live Mail client on the server and it worked acceptably.
