All the Outlook plug-ins for Kolab now support the Kolab-XML format. KDE
Kontact already supports Kolab-XML and Horde will support the format in
Kolab 2.2 (coming soon TM - points finger at Gunnar). So you will have a
choice of 3 commercial Outlook plug-ins, one very reasonably priced, and
native Linux and a web clients.

We also have a migration tool from MS Exchange to Kolab, mail and groupware
objects like calendars, contacts, tasks, etc., still in beta.


Kolab might just be worth another look. http://www.kolab.org/
