I already use vbox (there are currently 3 Fedora instances running in
vbox vm's on the gentoo box I am using to type this att and then there
is vmware on my laptop for work uses and qemu at home - for Fedora and
windows on gentoo
, however, running another operating system just to
read exchange email/calendaring (work nonsense!) - might just as well
give up and run windows and outlook in a vm. I am currently using
davmail to interface evo 2.26.3 to exchange and it works reasonably
well, but again I am hoping to use the advances in later evo versions to
go direct and not via a connector.
