That would be at least a workable interim-solution until Scalix gets their act together (perhaps they are currently busy migrating their internal mail system to Exchange and will continue with development once this is completed)...
Until the end of September it was at least possible to buy Office 2007 and get 2010 as a free Upgrade. This is now no longer possible and all new Office versions bought now HAVE to be the unsupported 2010 version
For me, the lack of both minor and major Scalix Updates is becoming quite a serious problem. User satisfaction is not that great (mostly due to (some) connector bugs and (lots of) Activesync bugs), and explaining to the management why we cannot use Office 2010 is difficult at best...
(and the total silence from Scalix/Xandros makes one wonder if the product has a future at all...)

the active sync component is the worst piece of software scalix ever released, it chokes on certaincontact entries, it chokes on certain html messages or calendar entries, which leads to the "solution" for me to regularly empty all imap caches, sxmboxexp and sxmboximp contact-folders and restarting tomcat every time a user complains. i do not think that this active sync connector is too high on their list, i presume their biggest efforts are getting outlook 2010 running. but as you know, since there is no official release date for anything you will have to sit and wait ....fooman82 wrote:35 Active sync licenses that we have paid for but are not using because Activesync + Scalix is not a robust solution (all mobile users are using imap for mail syncing)
