if you are getting the unsupported browser error all you need to do is pretend to use Windows and IE by spoofing your browser (user agent ID).

The way I know to do this is to use multizilla and mozilla - it(multizilla) has browser spoofing in the QPrefs button menu.

you want a browser string that looks something like this : -

MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0

(EDIT - I should read the post properly - not just the header - but I'm sure the same applies. If you can get kmail to send an outlook ID string your on to a winner).
