Seems a number of people are using iPlanet mail and calendar servers, with
varying degrees of satisfaction.
Most noted that outlook can use IMAP. The main problem is the 'Groupware'
stuff. Email has many solutions
but there is very little that competes Exchange and the ilk.

Also got a warning about using outlook. Unfortunately many here people seem to
like the interface.

Other options people came up with:

Lotus Notes and Domino which run on various platforms.
Corporate Time
Meeting Maker from On Technology
Communigate Pro

 Original Question:

    The powers that be want to replace our current mail system and we really
don't want to use Exchange. Has any one used the iplanet suite of
mail/calendar etc services? Most of the desktops will be NT/Win2K so it will
(unfortunately) need to be compatible with Outlook.

  Functionality needed is:

     Shared Calendars
     Room/Resource bookings

   Any suggestions, war stories would be greatfully received.
