    * Stupid Question...Please Help!

    I'm a novice, but I realize this is a stupid question:

    Is there a way to setup a Microsoft Exchange Server on a Red Hat based OS?

    Also, how can an auto-reply be created within regular Microsoft Outlook (i.e. not in exchange)?

    Please help. Thank you.

    No. You will need a Microsoft Server OS to install it.

    If you told us why you would want Exchange to run on Unix, perhaps someone could give you a comparitive or alternate solution that would work equally as well?

    For access to my inbox from anywhere and all of Outlooks other features.

    You can't install Exchange or anything similar in UNIX (that I am aware of), but you can certainly install Samba (SMB) on the UNIX box and then use a VPN to connect to it. The advantage is that you can run your Outlook files (.psd) right from the UNIX server giving you total mobility

    Wouldn't outlook work with regular pop3 smtp servers which can be ran on linux. I thought that Exchange is normally used for corporate LANS WANS. Might be wrong though.
