Is anyone using Live@Edu? Apparently you can tie it into Active Directory now.
We use Zimbra for our students and a product called FirstClass from OpenText for our staff. Both highly recommended.
Using, well will be in a couple of weeks time, Exchange 2010 as we have finally had it with the LEA provided system. Hoorah!
We currently Use FrogMail as it came part of our Frog VLE but it really is like some old mail system from the late 90ís. For that reason we are moving to Zimbra.
Iv been looking at both Exchange, Zimbra and we have decided to go for Zimbra.
A couple of the main reasons we have chosen Zimbra are:
Single sign on from VLE (just finishing off my signal sign on Frog Brick now)
Ability to share calendars without administration involvement (Exchange requires an admin to change permissions vs Zimbra publishes a web link that can be put on VLE by users NOT ADMINS)
Use our existing Postfix student bad word filter on Zimbra.
And I really like what webman stated about it allows staff to enable/disable email access for the room
We currently use Exchange 2003, started the move to Exchange 2010 last week and hopefully will finish and have it up and running next week
We use Exchange 2007 for both Staff and Students here.
Used to use Exchange 2003 and Easymail before the summer, Exchange for staff -> students easymail. Got them running side by side with no one outside the organisation being none the wiser ... was a pita!
We use Exchange 2007 here. Its good and does what we wants. It really inst that expensive for it either. The thing with exchange is that is that when it has problem it doesn't tend to be straight forward.
I haven't used Zimbra at all.
