While Groupwise is neither free nor open source it's a very viable alternative to Outlook and Exchange.

With that said. The Groupwise client is free. Maybe some of these backend systems should at least consider creating some interoperability with it. It's a good front end client that work with Windows and Suse Linux (that's a con).

On a side note. I think e-mail is handled quite nicely by a number of backends and clients. That's not really in question I don't think. The problem is the calendars and contacts and such.
