The add-on, called Samba Oxtender, provides Linux-based log-on file and print services for Microsoft Windows workstations.
Samba Oxtender enables streamlined and efficient administration with end-user functionality managed via a single front end, Open-Xchange said. All data, including e-mails and files, are stored in a single place, simplifying e-mail server administration.
Along with e-mail, calendaring, contacts and task management, Open-Xchange provides groupware features such as document sharing, project tracking, user forums, and a knowledge base.
It also supports rich client desktop applications such as Microsoft Outlook as well as most browsers and mobile devices.
Samba Oxtender will be available from mid-March through the Open-Xchange online shop and the Open-Xchange partner network.
