Maybe this is a dumb question, but if the company uses Outlook, why
don't they give *you* a copy?

Subject: Replacement for Outlook
Hi, guys...I'm doing more and more working telecommuting. I've been
granted VPN access to the company (not an easy thing for a contractor
around here) and are pretty much able to come and go as I please.
However, one of the things I need to do is get some type of program on
my laptop that will access the company mail system.
We use Outlook. Before I go and buy a copy of Outlook, dod anyone know
if there is an Open Source equiv to Outlook? I'd need as close a
replacement as I can get.
