The company, which has U.S. offices in Oakland, Calif., says its server software combines SuSE's Linux Enterprise Server operating system with an
e-mail server and groupware functionality to form a communications and groupware solution. According to SuSE, the new offering combines the best of
all worlds: proven open source components; comprehensive software applications that offer reliable e-mail functions for the reception, distribution,
and dispatch of e-mail; integrated Web mail clients; and smart, central appointment and address management, and efficient project management and task
planning tools to streamline enterprise operations. A centrally controlled document management tool and group-based discussion forums to enhance the
efficiency of project teams are also available.
SuSE says newest version also gives customers the choice of either migrate all of their communication services to Linux or continue to use installed
groupware and messaging applications on their PCs. In addition to being Outlook compatible, SuSE Linux Openexchange Server works with all common
browsers and synchronizes with Palms and PocketPCs.
