They are a small company at this time. All they are requesting is the
following: Email Server, File Server, Calendar Server (to work with
Outlook), Web Server, and possibly some other small items.
May I recommend postfix? It is far easier to configure and has a much
more stellar record for security. Also I presume you are going to use
clamav and spam assassian right?
Email Server = SendMail
File Server = Samba

My question is: Is Outlook Connector the solution I need to be able to
have Outlook access a calendar on my linux server?
Good idea on a separate development and production environment. You
might want to setup a staging server as well. FC is fine for servers
btw. Many people use it. Really the only reason to run RedHat Enterprise
Linux is if you need Oracle. I am a debian man myself. I am actually
developing a full server distro based on debian. It is a full on

If you need any more information please let me know.
The proposed OS is: Fedora Core 5 (I am familiar with it) I know it
isnt a "server" OS, but with the proven successfulness of linux I will
be upgrading to the latest version of RedHat Server. I actually have 3
server boxes, and will be setting up two of them exactly the same so I
can have a 'test network' and the 'real thing'.
