Open Source Alternative to Microsoft Exchange

DavMail is a POP/IMAP/SMTP/Caldav/LDAP exchange gateway allowing users to use any mail/calendar client (e.g. Thunderbird with Lightning or Apple iCal) with an Exchange server, even from the internet or behind a firewall through Outlook Web Access. DavMail now includes an LDAP gateway to Exchange global address book and user personal contacts to allow recipient address completion in mail compose window and full calendar support with attendees free/busy display.

The main goal of DavMail is to provide standard compliant protocols in front of proprietary Exchange. This means LDAP for address book, SMTP to send messages, IMAP to browse messages on the server in any folder, POP to retrieve inbox messages only and Caldav for calendar support. Thus any standard compliant client can be used with Microsoft Exchange.

DavMail gateway is implemented in java and should run on any platform. Releases are tested on Windows, Linux (Ubuntu) and Mac OSX. Tested successfully with the Iphone (gateway running on a server).
