Can she utilize VNC?

We have an IMAP server which I point Thunderbird at.  That works.  If
not, she should ask if her company has Outlook Web Access installed,
which doesn't require Outlook, but gives the same functionality to the
user via a standard browser.  Novell Evolution is also an option and
there are many howto's for getting that going.  So, choose your
poison.  If she has a decent connection, the least hassle will be to
install VNC.  Then she doesn't have to learn any new software.  You
could even enable Remote Desktop and use rdesktop to access it
