I'm not sure if IMAP supports contacts, calendar and so on. Most of those
features are working in evolution and the new camell storage seems to be
much better, but still it crashes from time to time.
I'm not in position of asking questions which version of exchange they are
using, but I guess it is 2007 with webservices

The devmail thing looks promising but quite an overhead ... I've never heard
of it yet, still very interesting, so that I'll put it on my to do list.

I'vebeen using evolution with exchange for over a week now and it is not
that bad. It crashes from time to time and I'll file bugs, or look for
similar, but I can see much improvement comapred with the last version
(2.22) which I've been using for the last 3,5 years.
