               in an all Unix Email and Calendar Environment"
              (or Immovable Objects meet Irresistible Forces)"
          By: Brian Connolly <connolly at speakeasy.org>
    Location: Department of Electrical Engineering (EE1 Building)
              University of Washington

Abstract:

"A small group of staff members requested the installation of an
 Exchange Implementation in order to improve productivity and mobile
 computing.  The current Email and Calendar infrastructure is a
 unix-based implementation running SENDMAIL/UW-IMAP and SunOne
 Calendar. Our goal was to design the Exchange implementation to
 handle email messages identically to our other email servers. This
 design would allow us to keep our management costs low and to utilize
 our existing email processing and logging tools. This talk will
 discuss the implications of our design goals in the Exchange rollout
 and how they affected both administration of the servers and end-user
 usability."

Short Bio:

Brian is currently a Senior System Engineer at Cray, Inc. in Seattle.
Like an inordinate number of people in the Seattle SAGE Group, he is
only 1 or 2 degrees of separation away from MBT at the UW. (In his case,
only 1, as he had worked for there for a short time).

This is FREE and open to the public and a wonderful opportunity.

The Seattle SAGE Group (SSG) is a local group for systems & network
administrators in the Seattle and Pacific northwest areas (North
Western Washington). We are a local chapter of SAGE, but SAGE / USENIX
membership is not a requirement.  We sponsor a regular monthly meeting
open to the public on the second Thursday if each month at 7 p.m.
