Hi,

I am searching for an alternative to an MS Exchange as a Personal
Information Suite (Must have: Mail,Adressbook,Calender,Sync to Mobile; nice
to have: Jobs,Notice).
My favorit was Zimbra. But short before the decision it seems that Zimbra
will not support SUSE12.

What did you use? Any hints?

Bye

Bernd

Hi Bernd,

we're using Horde successfully on SLES. That's currently still SLES11SP3, but it should work on SLES12 as well.

Regards,
Jens

the "Horde Groupware Webmail Edition" (http://www.horde.org/apps/webmail) (which is a "bundle" of the important Horde modules, plus some configuration code making integration easier) does email, calendar, notes, tasks and more, and comes with an ActiveSync-compatible interface to sync to mobile devices (it has other interfaces, as well).

Being a groupware, it does shared resources (i.e. calendars and address books) and we're using it synching to Android devices via ActiveSync protocol. Which kind of sucks with the Samsung client, but works like a charm when using "Nine" on Android. I know that many users are synching to iOS devices, too.

Regards,
Jens
