Does anyone have evo 1.2 working with MS Exchange LDAP server?.. if so can you

I've monitored evo and gq using Ethereal..
Results from using gq (which works)
firstly, it binds but with simple authentication and dn and password set to
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
    Message: Id=1  Bind Request
        Message Length: 7
        Version: 2
        DN: (null)
        Auth Type: Simple (0x00)
        Password: (null)

Active Directory doesn't do a simple bind, AFAIK AD is using a sort of
SASL library, which is unsupported in gq, that's why gq does only a
anonymous search.

actually it's probably doing an anonymous bind because he didn't tell it
to authenticate him :)

we do simple binds with AD servers and it seems to work fine.

Furthermore AD uses additional ABSTRACT object classes, which are not
part of X.500 protocol.
It's all documented in the Microsoft White Paper 'Understanding LDAP'.

This shouldn't affect authentication (or even searching) with evolution.
