 The Evolution of Linux and Windows E-Mail

Linux Planet talks about some Linux alternatives in an Exchange environment.

"Evolution can automatically receive and correctly process meeting requests received from Microsoft Outlook clients, but cannot always correctly respond to such requests. This is because Microsoft Exchange uses a combination of the MAPI (Microsoft's Messaging Application Programming Interface) and WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning) interfaces to exchange calendar and scheduling information. Outlook supports iCalendar and iTIP to some extent, enabling Evolution users to initiate meeting requests that Outlook users can respond to."
