"In an extraordinary feat of API legerdemain, Bynari, Inc. the Dallas-based maker of Linux/UNIX groupware solutions announced a breakthrough InsightConnector product. Once Connector is installed, Outlook clients can perform a full range of groupware operations through any server which employs the open standard Internet Mail Application Protocol (IMAP) with ACLs (access control lists).

Before Connector, such IMAP servers could only store Outlook mail and newsgroup postings. Potentially, this means that an enterprise can migrate its Exchange servers to a secure mainframe or UNIX environment, while allowing Outlook users carry on business as usual.

In short, for the vast majority of shops deploying Microsoft desktops, Exchange servers are no longer the only game in town. With InsightConnector installed on a Windows machine, Outlook can talk to Bynari's own Insight server, as well as to Caldera's Volution, CommuniGate Pro, Courier-IMAP, the open source Cyrus IMAP, IMail Server, iPlanet, and the SuSE Linux eMail Server III."
