"Caldera's Volution Messaging Server 1.0 allows system
administrators to support different e-mail and collaboration
clients, including Microsoft Outlook, on a Linux server. This
avoids the use of a Windows 2000 or NT server, and buying licenses
for Exchange. I tested Volution to see if it lived up to its
promises in ease of administration, and, unfortunately, found it
lacking in one key area.
According to the Volution Messaging Server documentation,
OpenUnix 8 or OpenLinux 3.1 was required for the installation. Real
Linux users know this is complete marketing smoke, but hey, I can't
blame Caldera for trying. If the software will install on Caldera,
it most likely will, without much effort, install on Red Hat, SuSE,
and Mandrake as well. (A spokesperson says Caldera has not tested
or certified it on other versions of Linux.) To stick to the stated
requirements, however, I installed Volution on a Caldera
I hadn't installed a Caldera distribution of Linux in years. In
fact, now that I think back on it, the last time I installed a
Caldera distro the company was flaunting its work with Red Hat, and
the desktop was Spyglass. In the meantime, I had read of Caldera's
new-fangled installation tool named LIZARD."
