I'm somewhat in the same boat, I can use OpenOffice for everything I do
at work that requires M$ Word/Excel etc, however there is one
application I need under WindoZe that I can't use under Linux, and its
the only reason I do not convert my work system from WindoZe. I need
Microsoft Outlook and the group that runs the Exchange servers will not
enable IMAP on the Exchange servers.
Everything else I do at work is easier accomplished under Linux/Unix.
Is there a replacement that will work with Exchange? or is there a
reasonable way to get Outlook to work under Linux?
