Open-Xchange plans expanded e-mail option
Open-Xchange--server software for handling e-mail and calendars--is expected to announce on Tuesday an open-source project called Intelligent Design that will permit communications with the Evolution desktop software. Just as Open-Xchange is similar to Microsoft's Exchange server software, Evolution is similar to Microsoft Outlook letting computer users manage contact lists, appointments and e-mail.
Last week, Open-Xchange announced that Richard Seibt, formerly chief executive of what became Novell's Suse Linux, joined its board. Seibt left Novell in May after becoming head of European operations.
