I’ve been keeping an eye on Bongo for a while. It stared out as Hula, an open-sourced version of Novells NetMail. So it has heritage in a massively scalable mail server. Furthermore, from the start of Hula there has been a strong emphasis on ease-of-use. When Novell discontinued their sponsorship of Hula, some brave folks took over the project and duly renamed it Bongo. What we’ve got is a mail and calendar server which is easy to setup and maintain from the admin perspective and easy to use from the user perspective.
Today (I don’t have insomnia, I have a baby) I tried their 0.3.1 release. For me, it has to work with Evolution (my email/calendar client), and as you can see from the screenshot below. It does.
Lori and I will now be running this a our home calendar server.
