As we all know, Microsoft Exchange, even if it is very popular on enterprise systems, is not the most IMAP compliant server. This is causing problems with various email clients and there is demand to increase Exchange server’s compatibility with the open world and the magnitude of email clients outside Outlook.
Aalto University got their problems fixed with the Dovecot IMAP Proxy. The installation took just a few days, and now the users can use whatever email clients they want.
Siiri Sipilä, Account Manager IT infrastructure services Aalto University said:
„In Aalto University we provide Microsoft Exchange 2010 system as a centralized email solution. User base in the Aalto University is highly heterogeneous and supported operating systems include Linux, Microsoft Windows and Apple OSX and that is why we have several different email client software in use. The Project was completed on schedule and co-operation with Dovecot Solutions was very professional. The end result was that Pine and Thunderbird programs began to operate smoothly. Our goal was to give our users a better user experience, and I think it was achieved.”
„We created our IMAP Proxy to enable intercommunication with various IMAP servers and to increase IMAP compatibility of MS Exchange. Dovecot IMAP Proxy is a great tool for Microsoft System Integrators to help them to keep their Exchange systems to perform as expected“ says Markku kenttä, CEO of Dovecot OY.
