    Re: Licencing - Where to go for advice - SELECT & Exchange

    Well, there's an easy way to decide which is the way to go. Ask yourself "In your current situation which of the following is in shorter supply?" Is it:

    A) Time?
    B) Money?

    If your short of time, spend the money on Exchange licensing. If your short of money, take the time to learn and setup *nix and Zimbra.

    The obvious solution is to put this project on hold. Then raise the lack of resources issue with your SMT.

    Remind them that implementing email is not,

    1. Double Click Setup.exe
    2. Next
    3. Agree (Fully read of course )
    4. Next
    5. Next
    5. Email!

    But a whole lot more planning and implementing.

    Capacity Planning for servers, backups for this, including storage space and a server to handle this, tapes? disks?, then the number of users per server, disk space and speed needed... all tie'ing in with which server OS you use as to what specs it needs for that.

    We use Exchange 2003 btw.

    Re: Licencing - Where to go for advice - SELECT & Exchange

    I am the one pushing for this not them.
    They don't use email here, almost at all, so i am trying to get them to use it as a better way of communicating as well as the fact its part of the BECTA self review framework.

    I have now installed Fedora 7 ona box i have at home and am trying to install the open source version of Zimbra as a test to see how i get on, i will then try and run my home email services with Zimbra to see if it does excactly what i need it to.

    Linux is a dirty world to get into and i have already came up against several hurdles one of which is the fact that Zimbra needs the C++ libraries installed and it does not seem as easy as the microsoft way of downloading the libraries and installing them, the instructions i have are for building them and then installing them which just seems like a lot of hassle to me but fingers and toes crossed i will get what i need in the end after all for the saving and the addition to my ever expanding knowledge base, it has to be worth it.

    Wish me luck.

    Re: Licencing - Where to go for advice - SELECT & Exchange

    I find Ubuntu (6.06 LTS, 5 year support) better for Zimbra - there's a nice easy howto at Howtoforge.

    Installing the dependencies is as easy as:

    Code:
    admin@mail:~$ sudo apt-get install curl fetchmail libpcre3 libmp3c2 libexpat1 libxml2 libtie-ixhash-perl libstdc++5
    No searching, downloading and running a setup; or compiling and building required.
