According to the Jan issue of Linux User, there are replacements for
both Exchange and Outlook.

Bynari ( 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,
