OGD have switched from Zarafa with Active Directory integration to Microsoft Exchange 2013. In the excellent blog Dave Stork (IT Architect at OGD) writes about:
  1. The reasons why OGD has migrated from Zarafa to Microsoft Exchange 2013.
  2. From open source groupware solution Zarafa to Exchange: Part 1, A New Beginning. "The goal of the migration is to migrate existing mail from Zarafa to Exchange, in such a way that users will have the most smooth transition possible."...
  3. From open source groupware solution Zarafa to Exchange: Part 2, Active Directory. "Luckily, in most cases you can re-use the same objects (for example Distribution groups, Users and Contacts) and mail(box) enable them in Exchange. Zarafa and Exchange can be implemented in the same AD forest (during migration), but there are some gotchas." ...
  4. More on the migration tools in upcoming blogs.
Zarafa uses Microsoft Outlook or Microsofts ExMerge to import the Exchange Data to their semi open-source Zarafa Mail-server solution. They use the PST format to export a user mailbox and import it in Zarafa.
