Re: "pilot test of a mail service"

There are a *lot* of groupware alternatives, some of which don't even need to pay MS a license fee for ActiveSync.

That said, you buy most of these for convenience as it's quicker than to just set up your own IMAP, SMTP, caldav and carddav facilities which is perfectly possible.

What is telling is that Outlook STILL doesn't talk those Open Standards without plugins.
