A full installation of Scalix





The Scalix Virtual Appliance includes a full installation of the popular email collaboration software Scalix. The only two applications installed in addition to Scalix and its required components is Joe (a simple text editor) and VMware Tools.

We strongly discourage you against using this appliance in production. It is intended to be a simple turn-key solution for users and administrators who want to take a closer look at Scalix without having to spend time on configuring it.

The virtual appliance was created with VMware Server 2, but should work in most recent VMware applications, such as VMware Fusion, VMware Player and VMware Workstation.
