It appears to be "simple" MSRPC calls. MSRPC is a (surprise!)
bastardized DCE-RPC. The steps to re would be:
a) implement dce-rpc. There is at least one open
implementation out there, but it's not free. I don't know how
picky you guys are with licensing (I hope *very*) but maybe if
the exchange stuff were shipped separately... IANAL.
b) bastardize dce-rpc until the endpoint mapper works with
msrpc. This sounds like tedious work, including getting really
friendly with a good sniffer.
c) re the rpc's spewed by outlook and exchange. Someone with
MSVC++ libs, headers and docs could probably go a long way
down this road.
If it sounds like a large project, that's because it is.
Samba uses MS-RPC calls. Maybe someone should have a talk with
Luke Leighton or some other Samba developers?
