> HI Murali,
> You seems to mix up two things:
> a) Exchange is the full flavored groupware developed and maintained by
> Microsoft. You can connect to it via the proprietary exchange API,
> used by MS Outlook.
> b) For mobile devices, MS Exchange provides a special protocol called
> "Exchange ActiveSync" which is not a groupware but a "communication
> language". This protocol is available in mobile clients for example iOS
> Traditionally, MS Outlook only allowed to connect to an Exchange Server
> the Exchange API. Outlook was not able to talk "Exchange ActiveSync
> Since Outlook 2013 this changed, EAS became a widely used protocol in
> last decade, so MS decided to "teach" Outlook also the EAS language -
> during account setup in Outlook you have to choose "ActiveSync", _NOT_
> "Exchange", since this would use the Exchange API.
> Horde provides this EAS "language", so you can connect to it using any
> aware client - forMS Outlook you have to use at least Version 2013.
> Is Horde is a 100.0% Replacement? No, it is not. But imo it is quite
> and since most users do not use 100.0% of Exchanges functionality, you
> consider switching. I use it in my private environment it is very nice!
> I assume you want to sync address book, calendar and tasks? That works
> nice with outlook.
> Email via EAS is not that nice (Outlook 2013 is very buggy regarding
> but you can setup an IMAP account to the same email account for email
