 SuSE OpenExchange: More Than a Mere Mail Server

Nice review of the next incarnation of SuSE's Linux eMail Server. OpenExchange is a direct shot at MS Exchange, with what I think are superior features and usability. "No one needs a server this sophisticated for merely distributing emails across the network. The heart of OpenExchange is the PostgreSQL database. Documents are stored as database objects, rather than simply copied over via Samba. This doesn't matter to users, of course, who see standard directory trees and have a nice GUI to click and drag through. Items are hyperlinked for easy organization and retrieval and for conserving disk space -- there's no need to create endless multiple copies of files for distribution."
