6 Linux Groupware Servers

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.

Meet Geary: A Thunderbird Email Client Alternative on Linux

On Linux there are a few open source alternatives to the Thunderbird email client. There’s Evolution, KMail, Claws-Mail, Alpine (if you’re really old-school), and a handful of other clients (most of which, don’t live up to anyone’s expectations). There’s also a new kid on the email block. That kid is the brainchild of Yorba. Meet Geary, the new default IMAP email client for the GNOME desktop (and the likes of Elementary OS Freya). Read more

Philly’s open source mentorship program is back and expanding to 3 cities

Women are drastically underrepresented in the open source movement. Of the open source contributions made in 2013, only 11 percent were made by women, according to a survey of the open source community. Girl Develop It wanted to change that. That’s why the nonprofit partnered with civic hacking group Code for Philly last year to launch a summer-long open source fellowship for women. Fellows said the program helped them find their place in the tech community. Read more
