    Exchange Server Mail Client In Linux

    Hi,

    This is going to sound a daft question but is there a program that you can use as an Exchange server mail client for Linux.

    For example you would normally use Microsoft Office Outlook in Windows. But what about Linux?

    Thank You

    PS: The Linux client is connected to the domain via Samba

    KDE: Kontact

    Gnome: Evolution

    With MSexchange being evil proprietary crap, not all features are supported.

    With Evolution you need to make sure that you have the Exchange plugin installed (your package manager should help there) and then it's just a case of going through the wizardy-thing.

    It's not quite as nice as Outlook I must admit but it does the job admirably.
