microsoft exchange

Link to this post 23 Oct 09

Hello,

I have no understanding of the corporate world of computing. I'm very happy with using linux everyday. My work laptop uses xp and has outlook and connects thru a vpn to a login for microsoft exchange server I believe.

simply put I'd like to use my linux laptop to connect and send emails to this microsoft server. I also use excel spreadsheet.

I don't know where to start except that I used to use "Samba" for a home network with both xp and linux running???

Hi :)
you can use evolution mail to communicate with m$ exchange via owa(outlook web access).
For all the M$ Office stuff you can use OpenOffice 3.0 and to communicate with windows shared folders you have to use samba. But as far as i know ubuntu comes up with all of these programs.
Cheers
