Scalix made its Linux-based e-mail and groupware platform Scalix 11 available last week, with features such as improved Web client access, support for mobile users, support for users of Microsoft Outlook and interoperability with Microsoft Exchange servers.
Scalix is an open source mail server, based on OpenMail, which runs on Linux serves, and uses e-mail standards such as POP, IMAP, SMTP, MIME and works with any standard Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory.
Previous versions of Scalix already supported Microsoft Outlook clients; the new version adds mobile Outlook support, as well as improved searching and performance, the company says.
For back-end administration, Scalix 11 includes a Recover Folder tool for saving items deleted accidentally by end-users. A Scalix Migration Tool is also included, which could help administrators move an enterprise based on Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5, 2000 or 2003 to Scalix 11.
For developers, Scalix 11 includes Scalix Messaging Services - APIs based on the Simple Object Access Protocol standard, which allow programmers to integrate Scalix e-mail and calendar software with other SOAP-compatible enterprise platforms, such as ERP or CRM software.
Scalix 11 is available now with pricing starting around $60 per seat.
