If you are looking to connect to the Gconnect Hosted Exchange platform from an open source desktop such as Ubuntu, Mint or CentOS then try Exquilla with Mozilla Thunderbird. From the Mozilla Thunderbird ‘Tools’ menu, Exquilla can be installed as an add-on. After that a menu item called ‘ExQuilla for Microsoft Exchange’ appears in the ‘Tools’ menu, from which you can configure the account. In addition to the email, ExQuilla also synchronises the address book, making the solution even better! Open-source is great, but sometimes we need to combine it with enterprise applications that businesses use, and at Gconnect we are always looking to offer the most appropriate solutions.
