    Never heard of it, and I deal a lot with Mail Servers. What type of Infrastructure do you have?? Active Directory, Linux, NT, ETC.....

    Half a dozen w2000 on a LAN(switcher connected to a router with internet connection). File server: an unused PC (w2000) with shared folders. INternet ,as said, is through a router. Email is through OE6 client with no shared mailbox. What we'd like is a shared mailbox for sending/receiving emails.

    If I were you, I would strongly consider Exchange Server and upgrading your email client to Microsoft Outlook.

    Isn't Exchange pricey?

    That solely depends on your budget. The other thing you can do would be to ask if you can get a trial of Mercury so you can test it out and make sure it's what you want. You do get what you pay for.

    Exchange cost close to 1000.00 if bought over the net. Having centralized email is not that urgent to warrant such a purchase-not with a LAN of only six computers. And I'm not sure Exchange is the best. In the meantime found out Novell offers something that may be a lot better: Groupwise7..It looks a lot like what we need and runs on Linux as well (an added bonus).
