Thanks in advance.

I don't think I understand fully what your looking for. So you want a non-Outlook mail client to access reminders that you stored in Outlook? Are these reminders stored in a local profile outlook.pst file or in an Exchange server mailbox? Please explain some more detail about what your trying to accomplish.

Yes,you are absolutely right.I want a non-MS Outlook mail client to access reminders that users stored in MS Outlook.These reminders are stored in local pst file.Here is no exchanger server.

My approach is, convert the licensed MS-Outlook mail clients to free opensource mail clients.But all systems will not get it immediately.Some systems will continue with MS-Outlook mail client.So Non MS-Outlook and MS Outlook mail clients need to communicate with each other to get the reminders from other users.I hope I have explained.

The easiest method is probably to allow IMAP and LDAP access to the Exchange server, and use your IMAP/LDAP client of choice.

Else, the only non-Outlook Exchange client so far as I know is Evolution, but I've never managed to get along with it. If you're going to give it a look, make sure you have a go with it when productivity's not important.

IBM's Symphony supports Exchange, but I *think* it requires a configured Outlook install.
