For future developments, where you are up against MS Exchange/Outlook, there are two cards
to bring into play. It is a fact that the majority of viruses currently in the wild affect
MS Outlook, and that this likely to continue to be true. Second, if they want an
integrated personal organiser/messaging solution, then the schools version of SLOX is a
very high value product that provides that in a shiny and supported package.
I know it's not (yet) open source, but it's a step in the right direction, and I
don't think there is anything open source that can provide this functionality in a
way that education management can be sold it.

Your best bet would be to try and configure it

with exchange 03 & OWA.
Not had much experience setting this sort of thing up but, from a users
point of view I *personally* think Horde is the best web email
application I have come across.
Exchange has all the calendar integration etc. all in but the security
risks alone make it make it a no go for me, and OWA is very poor.

I am trying to configure an email server in our
network to handle internal
mail and i am having trouble finding documentation
on how to do it. I have
sendmail installed. Does anyone know where to find
the docs or has anyone
experience with this. There is nothing in the Suse
admin guide - presume they
want to sell me the software to do it?
