Scalix goes open source with mail software

Scalix, a server software company, announced Wednesday that it's making "major parts" of its mail software open source under a variant of the Mozilla Public License. The software, formerly sold by Hewlett-Packard as a product called OpenMail, is used to host and manage e-mail on a server.

The company announced the move at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention in Portland, Ore. Early moves in the open-source effort will begin in August, and the core directory and mail software will be released in the first quarter of 2007, the company said.

Scalix signed a new licensing deal with Hewlett-Packard to support the plan, the company said.
