There is a project under development, which does native MAPI for communication
with Exchange servers, allowing access to all types of objects (folders,
shared folders, calendar, contacts...). You may want to have a look at it:
The functions are bundled into a library (libmapi), making them available to
all applications that care to use the library. Early versions of interfaces
to the library exist for Evolution and the KDE PIM framework Akonadi.
