[ale] M$ mail server grousing




UoP has pretty much been brainwashed by M$.  I took a few classes there.
They'll tell you it's impossible to connect to exchange with anything
else and to attempt to do so would be unholy.  There is a web interface
to outlook though.  Looks and acts like outlook but you can use it with
Linux/Netscape.  Most of the techs don't like to admit it, but it's
there and works well enough.  See if you can find it.  If not let me
know and I'll dig through my bookmarks and see what I can find.


Thus spake Geoffrey (esoteric at 3times25.net):
