[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 (again) since the last
status update.

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 browsing of public and private
folders on Exchange is fully functional. You can even read all of your
mail using evolution-brutus except for any attachments.

Sending mail using e-b will be the next feature followed shortly by
support for attachments.
