Oh joy.  Novell.  :-/

Novell has a TCP/IP program (as part of Lan WorkPlace) that builds on the
existing Novell stack. We use it here at the UO.  

The only question is if any intervening devices (routers??) need to be
configured to route TCP/IP.  If not, set up a pop daemon on your FreeBSD
box, use Eudora Light on all those boxes, create usernames on the
FreeBSD box, set up Eudora to point to the email address on that
machine, and you're pretty much home for very low cost (Eudora is free).
The only sticky thing is installing & configuring Eudora on all those
machines (a five- to ten-minute job each).
