Re: [Evolution] wish-list (MS-Exchange support != MAPI support)

In our company (Philipp Morris, i am a IS guy located in Kraft Austria) we
are using only microsoft software, i am creating a few linux boxes.

We have exchange and i would be happy if i could work with Evolution on
the exchange servers. 

If you tell me, how i can do what you described, Miguel, i will do my best
to help you!!!

best regards

I just learned from IBM that Lotus Notes exposes its internals trough
XML-RPC or SOAP or WebDAV.  I forget which.  But there was a lot of
XML action going on.

It might be easier to support Notes than to support Exchange.

If someone here has Exchange, I would love if they could:

      1. Research what protocol Exchange uses to communicate with
           Outlook clients.

      2. Whether it is true or not that Exchange also supports
           XML-RPC these days.

      3. Whether it is possible to write a plugin in the Windows
           side that would just expose the Exchange internals trough
           CORBA, XML-RPC or any other standard protocol.

         That way we could ship a Windows module that would let us
         use Exchange without going trough their protocol (if their
         protocol is indeed non-documented).
