For my own department, separate from the rest of the county, I use G Suite just because I was tired of all the Exchange server problems they were having and I had the budget and authority to move off of their servers.
At home, I use ProtonMail for my personal stuff and that’s nice, too.
But for the county, the administrator really doesn’t want to have a cloud service with the “Netflix model” as he likes to say, meaning monthly, never-ending, fees.
The IT contractor the county uses likes open-source solutions, but I’m not sure how involved in the FOSS community he is. I’ll be having a meeting with them tomorrow afternoon to discuss this topic and I’ll learn more about that from him.

I was kind of wondering to myself this morning what the folks at IBM and Red Hat use for their corporate email system. Does anyone have an idea what that might be?
Tom, thanks for the Zimbra link, I’ll give it a look now.
