DavMail overview

DavMail will let you get rid of Outlook! It's a POP/IMAP/SMTP/Caldav/Carddav/LDAP exchange gateway allowing users to use any mail/calendar client (e.g., Thunderbird with Lightning or Apple iCal) with an Exchange server, even from the Internet or behind a firewall through Outlook Web Access. DavMail now includes an LDAP gateway to Exchange global address book and user personal contacts to allow recipient address completion in a mail-compose window and full calendar support with attendees' free/busy display. DavMail also supports the CardDav protocol to sync address books. This new feature is sponsored by French Defense / DGA through project Trustedbird. The main goal of DavMail is to provide standards-compliant protocols in front of proprietary Exchange. This means LDAP for global address book, SMTP to send messages, IMAP to browse messages on the server in any folder, POP to retrieve inbox messages only, Caldav for calendar support and CardDav for personal contacts sync. Thus any standards-compliant client can be used with Microsoft Exchange.
