I would like to know if anyone on this thread has any new information with regard to getting openexchange (the open-source version) to work with SME.

Also, is anyone working on a "how-to" for this same topic? I am new to SME, but somewhat familiar with *nix and would like to help in this matter where I can.

Hi .. I ve gone to Egroupware ( www.egroupware.org ).
Its really a lot of work to install OpenXchange on SME. You need
-postgres and more ...
Egroupware is much easier to install and has nearly the same features.
You only have to create an Ibay and copy the files to the html-folder. The developers are working at a Outlook-Synchronisation-tool, and the best is .. all for free.

Just wanted to get the ball rolling.

Sounded like someone got really close...did it start working after the PEAR updates?

Would love a step by step...I'm going to give it a shot as well.  I'll try to take notes.

I finally managed to follow the howtos on the ox site and got it to work on Fedora Core 1.

I'm going to give it a go on SME over Christmas, now that I've been through a learning curve on a redhat disto.

If it works I'll post back, but if SME needs any customisation to make it work I'm probably not good enough to do it.

Lets see

@Peter: Yes i got egroupware working with all its features. What is your problem with it? I think compared to Openxchange it is very easy to install.

Has anyone had any success in getting OpenExchange working with SME Server?

Otherwise, can anyone comment on the differences between OE and OpenGroupWare or eGroupWare? I don't care as much for the Outlook connector as I run Linux at home.

HI All,

I'm another one who is closely watching this one. Probably not good enough to do any of the configuration work, but could help out with testing it on my SME6.x box. I hope you can get it to work and put up a HOWTO as OpenExchange looks much more mature than many of the other offerings I have researched/tried. It is not just web based either, which is good. I think this would be a very, very popular contrib to put together.

Keep posting progress!

I too am very keen to see this succeed. We're business partners with SuSE and have used the OpenXchange-based SLOX for some time. To have it as an SME contrib would REALLY turn things around. Keen Keen Keen!
