According to the Jan issue of Linux User, there are replacements for
both Exchange and Outlook.
Bynari (www.bynari.net) has an Exchange replacement product called
TradeCenter. ~$600, or $10 to try.
They also sell an Outlook client called TradeXCH. ($60/$10)
Lastly they `sponsor' an opensource Outlook-like client called TradeClient
All are Linux-based, but might run under emulation.
I've not had any experience with any of these, other than a cursory look at
the website, though I'd be interested if anyone has any experience to
Hope this helps,
