microsoft exchange outlook-like connectivity..?


Is there any open-source project which would help me connect to my university's Microsoft Exchange server. I'm right now using POP to send/receive mail using Evolution 1.4.4. I want something which would bring-in all those outlook-like functionalities (address book, etc) to evolution.

I know theres something called Ximian Connector. But sadly, they do not have a binary for Mandrake 9.2 (my distro).

Is there anything else I can use?

no the link you gave me is an open-source exchange server. my university uses MS Exchange Server 2000. I want to access this server; which means I need an Outlook-like client for Linux. Though Ximian Evolution has a Connector to do this sort of thing, their website does not have a binary for MDK 9.2 So wondering if theres any other email client for linux which can interact with MS Exchange Server 2000?

I believe that the just released Evolution2 has Ximian Connector built in... Not sure though.

Press release says:
WALTHAM, Mass. May 11, 2004 Novell today announced its Connector for Microsoft* Exchange Server will be integrated into EvolutionTM 2.0 and made available as open source, beginning today with the current Connector 1.4. Evolution is Novell's award-winning e-mail and workgroup client for Linux* systems and is the most widely used collaboration suite on Linux. Evolution Connector allows Microsoft Exchange Server 2000/2003 users to easily manage their e-mail, calendars, group schedules, address books, public folders and tasks from Linux desktops.
