I'll have to give OGo a shot again, when I tested it, their connector
was still alpha-alpha quality. Any other data on your OGo install
(number of users, clients, etc.) that you'd be willing to part with?
I've been lucky to avoid the hellhole of exchange, but we've started
hiring more people from larger companies who can't understand why we
don't have it. Then I ask them how often they lost email or didn't have
email, they usually tell me "frequently" or "several times, for over a
week", and I get to tell them that in 7 years we've only had one
unplanned email outage during business hours which I think lasted an
hour... And that was when I bolloxed something ;)
