    Does OSX Server have a graphical front end for MySQL and are there MySQL clients for the wintel environment that are a no brainer for wintel users - one for data entry and one for retrieval.

    As well is there messaging software on par with MS Exchange available for OSX Server.

    Thanks for the answers in advance.

    There are several options available, some affordable, some downright expensive. I haven't tried any of these products, so I can't comment on their performance:

    MacSQL:

    SQLBoss:

    YourSQL:

    You can also try phpMyAdmin, which is a web-based frontend for databases. You must of course, run PHP. Check it out here:

    I have used phpMyAdmin several times, and I think it's pretty nifty.

    Good luck.
