Le Mozilla to handle email on 130,000 French government computers

OSOR.eu has details about a decision by the French Directorate General of Public Finance to migrate the mail client towards Mozilla on 130,000 computers. The Directorate General of Taxes had been using IBM Lotus Notes; while the Directorate General of Public Accountancy used Microsoft Outlook. The decision to merge the two departments led to an assessment of different solutions to make both entities software compatible. The economical weight of licenses eventually led to adopt the Mozilla suit.
