[Evolution-hackers] [Exchange] Project update for evolution-brutus


This is a short status report on the evolution-brutus (e-b for short)
add-on for Evolution 2.4. It has progressed a lot since the last status

What is e-b?

e-b is an add-on to Evolution 2.4 which provides access to Extended MAPI
and therefore to Exchange 5.5, 2000 and 2003 on an equal basis. The
access is provided by a Brutus server, which is a proxy translating MAPI
request to/from corresponding CORBA requests. Brutus is distributed
under the GPLv2 or later.

And the difference to evolution-exchange is?

Please see the first status report:



The functional state of e-b is that it is capable of getting a reference
to a remote IMAPISession object and using it. Online browsing of folders
in the remote Exchange mailbox is functional, but not completely done.
