Thanks Brian! This information is really great. I'm very excited to
try out the preview release when it's ready.
I know that our Exchange server must have IMAP set up, because our
Mac users access it via Mac OS X Mail. The problem they have is with
the calendar (and this is probably common to many Exchange users who
don't or can't run Outlook as a desktop client).
If I can help OSAF as a test environment for any of this development,
I'll be glad to get involved.
