"The Linux/FOSS world offers a wealth of excellent Linux-based groupware server choices, suitable for small shops to giant enterprises. Eric Geier rounds up six to get you started.

"Groupware solutions can help your organization better collaborate and manage work life. They can give users email access and help them better manage and share their contacts, calendars, to-do lists, appointments, and other information. Access is typically provided via a web interface and clients on computers and mobile devices. In this roundup, we'll discover Linux-based servers that can be an open source and economic alternative to big-name servers like Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes.

"SOGo

"SOGo supports the basic groupware functions: task management, calendars, address books and emails. The server and all related components are released under the GNU GPL/LGPL v2 license. That means even the connectors for Outlook and Thunderbird are available for free, unlike most other groupware solutions. Mobile phones and devices are also well supported, either natively or via a free SOGo connector.

"You can quickly setup a test server with their downloadable virtual appliances. Binary packages are available for several Linux distributions. You'll also find SOGo is well supported. They offer installation and configuration guides for the server and clients, a FAQ, and active mailing list.
