Linux options

Government customers have a few options when it comes to Linux-based e-mail servers.

Suse Linux currently offers Openexchange Server — for workgroups, departments, and businesses of up to around 500 users — and plans to launch an enterprise version by the end of 2004. In addition, Gordano Ltd.'s messaging server runs on Linux as well as Sun Microsystems Inc.'s Solaris and Microsoft Windows.

As for upcoming products, a Linux version of Sun's Java System Messaging Server is slated for April 2004.

Art Sands, chief operating officer at AC Technology Inc., said he recommends Unix- or Linux- based mail servers for customers seeking greater security.
