"Bynari has marketed Exchange client compatibility since Outlook 98. Our first versions provided a connector which received stiff opposition from Exchange administrators," adds Tom Adelstein. "Our latest solutions stand alone without a need to proxy off a Microsoft box and it still handles meeting requests, shared tasks, journals and automates calendar functions. We've always had demand from Unix users in Exchange environments. Now, we're seeing increased demand as the Linux desktop catches hold."
