    Question Which Groupware Server?

    I would like to set up a groupware server on my Hardy Server Platform with clients on Vista, Windows XP, and other Ubuntu PCs, and ideally the ability to sync with Pocket PCs (WinMobile 2003 2nd edition) would be desirable as well. The Windows PC clients don't have to be Outlook, but would be nice. There will be approximately 5 users.

    I'm looking to support calendaring, notes, tasks (toDo's), and e-mail. The data needs to stay "on the server" so that a client from any of the computers will see the same information.

    There seems to be a quite a few choices, any suggestions on which ones are easiest to operate/maintain/setup?

    Thanks,
    John

    Take a look at Zimbra, or Citadel. I like Zimbra myself, very robust AJAX interface. They have both a paid version and an open source version. Both work extremely well.

    Citadel with Easy Install is a snap to get running. Literally push a button and all the pieces automatically happen. Multiple clients and it's all open source. No functionality that requires payment. It's all one piece.

    It does everything you listed above.

    We conclude and that there are several (more than good) open source options for your purpose.
    Citadel, eGroupware, and so on... are good, but final decision is on you
    look at the documentation of every groupware what they offer, are they complicated, free, take look at some screenshots...
