Kolab

Kolab

Kolab is an open source groupware solution. It consists of the Kolab server and a wide variety of Kolab clients, including KDE PIM-Suite Kontact, Horde Webfrontend, Mozilla Thunderbird and Mozilla Lightning with SyncKolab extension and Microsoft Outlook with proprietary Kolab-Connector PlugIns.

Kolab adds intelligent interaction between the components, a web administration interface, management of free-busy lists and more. Major components of the Kolab Server are OpenLDAP, Postfix, Cyrus IMAP, Apache, SASL, and OpenSSL.

It supports mixed client environments (Outlook/KDE) because of an open storage format. Any email client speaking standard protocols can be served.

Kolab2 Server uses the OpenPKG environment to provide a constant base across multiple platforms and distributions.
