The Zentyal Development Team proudly announces the release of Zentyal Server 3.3, a new version of the Linux alternative to Windows Small Business Server and Microsoft Exchange Server. The most significant benefit it introduces is the option to configure Zentyal as a native Microsoft Exchange replacement.
Thanks to the OpenChange integration, it is possible to configure Zentyal Server as an on-premise Microsoft Exchange Server replacement with only two clicks and assign users the most common Microsoft Exchange services just as easily. Users can access these services through a web interface, or continue to use Microsoft Outlook clients as usual without having to install any additional software or plug-in on their computers.
“With the first Technology Preview provided during Zentyal Summit 2013, we offered a glimpse of how the Zentyal could offer native interoperability with Microsoft Exchange Server. Now, we are able to fully integrate this technology in Zentyal Server 3.3 , along many other new and exciting features”, commented Julien Kerihuel, CTO of Zentyal and Founder of OpenChange.
In addition, Zentyal 3.3 supports Autodiscovery and offers Virtual Domain hosting. It offers compatibility with Microsoft Outlook 2003 and preliminary access to calendars, contacts, mail and calendar via webmail. Since Zentyal offers a native implementation of Microsoft Exchange, users can not distinguish if their Microsoft Outlook client is using Microsoft Exchange Server or Zentyal, making migrations to Zentyal fully transparent.
