Assuming they had the typical corporate setup, I'd assume before they had something like Outlook/Exchange before they migrated last year. So what are they using now?

Well if they switched to Linux last year and they're only now going to Kolab, they must be using something in that gap. Although now that I think on it, maybe they're just toughing out the loss in functionality temporarily. Or they stuck with Exchange (assuming that's what they used) and are interfacing with that, which I'd be interested to know how that went.

Their French brethren have come up with a proxying client that translates all the proprietary MAPI stuff into open standards (IMAP, SMTP, CARDDAV, Caldav). It's here: I've used it at corporate clients any number of times without a hitch.
