Mozilla Thunderbird & Lightning (Sunbird)
A multi platform mail reader with calendar and address book on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux. Very lightweight, but highly extensible this client does not provide the same depth of groupware or even email features as the native Kolab client. It does however provide robust and intuitive usability and is a very good choice for many users who don't need the full capabilities of the native Kolab client. Integrating well with Mozilla Firefox, and integrating well with the Kolab calendars and address books, this client is a popular choice amongst many Kolab users.
Even though it should not be required to use Microsoft Outlook, sometimes it is inevitable or the best way forward. For these cases, Kolab Systems works with its partners to provide Microsoft Outlook connectors, which it also runs against its client test plan and certifies upon request of the vendors producing the Outlook connectors.
