Summary: The Linux provider has added another mail product to its enterprise server offering

SHARE:

Linux distributor Red Hat bulked up its open source enterprise server offering on Thursday by adding support for another open source mail product.

Open source collaboration toolset Open-Xchange Server 5, which until now was only available on Novell's SuSE Linux Enterprise Server, will now be supported on Red Hat Enterprise Server 4.

Red Hat already offers a number of open source mail products with its enterprise version of Linux including the Cyrus mail server and the SpamAssassin spam filter.

Open-Xchange Server offers additional features including calendaring, contacts and a connector to the Microsoft Outlook mail client, allowing companies to migrate from Microsoft Exchange to Open-Xchange without needing to change their mail client.

Netline, the company behind the Open-Xchange Server, said in April that it plans to provide commercial support for its product on Mac OS X and Solaris later this year.
