It also includes native Microsoft Outlook compatibility support. This release should be good enough for normal Outlook usage in small-sized environments. See the documentation for currently known limitations.

When testing the native Outlook compatibility, the domain you must use for local data is example.com. Have a look at the in-depth documentation on this release for more details.

  • x86 64-bit architecture
  • 40 GB of hard disk (ext4)
  • 2 GB of memory
  • 1 network card

You might want to adjust these specifications to suit your testing environment and configure bridging of the network card.
