Open Source Journal on Ulitzer

Open-Xchange announced today the availability of a free connector for Mozilla Thunderbird, the cross-platform e-mail and news client developed by the Mozilla Foundation.

The "Community OXtender for Thunderbird" software connector gives users full access to appointments and contacts stored in the Open-Xchange Server and enables them to use Thunderbird as a rich PIM (Personal Information Management) client to access data online and offline. The software packages and documentation are available here.

"Mozilla Thunderbird and Open-Xchange are a great open source alternative to Microsoft Outlook and Exchange," said Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange. "The availability of this OXtender lowers costs and will be attractive to educational institutions, public administrations, as well as businesses."

The "Community OXtender for Thunderbird" is developed and maintained by Open-Xchange Business Partner Fusionworkx. For more information, visit the official "Community OXtender for Thunderbird" project page, www.thunderbird-oxtender.com.

The Thunderbird client software helps individuals manage their online interactions -- whether e-mail, instant messaging, social networking messages, or other types of messages.

The Open-Xchange groupware resides on the server and provides e-mail, calendar, contact, document and task management in an integrated application. Open-Xchange makes communication easier and teamwork more efficient.
