OpenOffice.org 2.x does not have an e-mail client, nor a calendaring tool. There are plenty of programs available (including open source), that can do the job for you.
However, whether the alternatives can help you all the way, strongly depends on your needs and platform: Windows, Linux or another.
In any case, when working in a multi-user environment, there is a need for both a server and a client part of the application. On the client side, browser-based applications are gaining popularity and constantly becoming more powerful. Therefore, it makes sense to use the information below as a starting point, that might not be fully up to date. Use the links below to look for the most recent developments.
Futhermore, it would be useful to have more structured data later on, for each product mentioned, for example: - win / lin / both; - server / cliënt / browser; - shared calendar / not; - and more.
The current list:
- The Mozilla Thunderbird e-mail project
- Groupwise - the complete solution from Novell
- Covide - browser based groupware/CRM, supports OpenOffice.org
- O3Spaces - integrated solution for collaboration, document management and document retention
- Zarafa - replaces Exchange server and has advanced browser-based client
- Kerio - replaces Exchange server and has advanced browser-based client
- Evolution's port for Windows
- Evolution - Linux
- The Mozilla Calendar project
If appropriate: also read the licences for the Exchange-server. They may allow for the use of Outlook, giving the possibility to change over to OpenOffice.org without having to bother about the e-mail/calendaring tool right now.
