Number one Exchange replacement Zarafa releases software Open Source

by Volker Weber

In an effort to sponsor and support the creation of an enterprise open source Exchange replacement, the company will contribute the full core of the server-side source code of the Zarafa platform - known for its 100% MAPI compatibility and flexibility - to the community. This will allow more options for compatibility, localization, enhancements and further integration options with other systems.

Zarafa open source offering will consist of the Zarafa server, Z-Merge (a new web services API platform for application integration), the Zarafa IMAP/POP3/iCal gateway, the Zarafa Administration Console, the Zarafa WebAccess and many other tools and services. It is the only groupware platform that includes open source ActiveSync compatibility, which enables organizations to have remote synchronisation and pushmail for Windows Mobile, Nokia’s Mail for Exchange and iPhones.

the only thing missing in the open source package:
the mapi connector to be able to use microsoft outlook.

but very nice anyway.

Yes, it is missing, but (from the FAQ):
The first three users that connect to the community versions with Outlook can only use Outlook
