    Default Suggestion: add DavMail Server as an app

    Looking at the Sourceforge Top 25 for December, I see the DavMail package listed. Since we run Exchange in our organization and many folks have smart phones, having the DavMail server as an app on our Untangle gateway would allow much better access to mail / calendar / contacts for my mobile users.

    Umm... or we can simply get those Exchange users to upgrade to Exchange 2007/2010. OWA on those products has been improved to such a degree that you don't NEED DavMail or anything else like it.

    Heck, Exchange 2010 OWA officially supports firefox, for crying out loud!

    True, I guess (haven't really researched the newer versions) but: small business, solidly working Exchange 2003 installation. Haven't had the desire to spend dinero to fix what ain't broke, especially since what I recall of the 2007 / 2010 new features didn't really seem to offer anything notably useful to my company.

    Except of course markedly improved remote access.

    Exchange 2007/2010 have massively improved disaster recovery tools. Infinitely better backup / restore APIs, and insanely better OWA. Not to mention incredibly flexible out of the box anti-spam tools.

    There isn't one inch of the product that isn't improved.

    IMHO, if you are still operating on Exchange 2003 you are a fool. Yes, it is THAT good. The differences between exchange 2007 and 2010 make me want to upgrade... 2003 makes me want to do my own dentistry anytime I have to work on it.

    All right , but dont forget a little detail:
    The pricey license!!!, and one change force other, you enjoy view exchange 2010 with outlook 2003?

    If you're using exchange, the licensing price shouldn't be in the equation.

    There are many less expensive alternatives that don't quite hit the Exchange mark... but work. If you've deployed Exchange and not budgeted for it's expensive upkeep... you've failed.

    There really isn't any other way to slice it. And that is the primary reason why I don't deploy Exchange very often.

    I have a lot of exchange 2003 deployed.
    All of them in small bussines from 20 to 150 users.
    And all of them I need to fight very hard with owners, cio´s and managers to accept increase the budget for thinks that are "working well", they dont understand massively improved disaster recovery tools. Infinitely better backup / restore APIs, and insanely better OWA. Not to mention incredibly flexible out of the box anti-spam tools.
    Thanks to robustness of windows 2003 this year I only can sell 2 windows 2008, and was for hardware issues.
    I understand the life cycle of technology, know the advantages and needs of use the last, but the budget in small bussines here in the 3 world its only to replace the broken.

    That's not a security function and this is a security appliance. There's other distros that inspire to do that..clearos is one..or zentyal..to start.
