I've wanted to try this functionality for the longest time but  the
documentation states that one needs a Windows box to run the Brutus
server. So.. Esentially what it's trying to do is something like a proxy
for Evo?

Evo Client (*NIX) --> Windows Box (Brutus) --> Exchange 2007

Is This right?? 

This is absolutely right. There is no way, short of reverse engineering
the MAPI wire protocol, to connect to Exchange with MAPI unless you have
something like Brutus Server on the Windows side to handle to conversion
to/from native MAPI.

The good thing is naturally that you can serve any number of non-Windows
clients (only limited by the server hardware) by one Brutus server.
