Global Address List (Exchange Server 2003)

Hi all,
I've setup Evolution and the Evolution Connector to gain access to our work's exchange server (2003 i believe). I'm able to recieve emails, however there are three issues I encountered

The first is that when running Evolution for the first time, I was unable to setup the Exchange Server profile, after specifying the servername, it would lock up for a good 3 minutes and then say that it's unable to connect. I fixed this problem by running ximian-connector-setup-2.6 instead.

One of the other issues is that I can't see anywhere in evolution that automatically checks for new email messages. I understand there is a 'check for messages every 'x' minutes' section, but I was hoping evolution had the capability to detect when new messages arrive just like Outlook 2003. Did I miss something somewhere?

Finally, the Global Address List system is giving me alot of trouble. When searching for names, sometimes I dont get any results at all, sometimes I do. I've found that switching between the Personal Address book and back to the Global Address List can encourage Evolution to show some results. Is there any functionality on Evolution that will download the entire global address list and allow me to search that way?

I understand that Evolution wasn't really designed to deal with the Microsoft Exchange Server, so I'm not expecting it to be a quick and easy fix...

Is there another email client out there that supports Exchange Servers? I am using the K desktop environment afterall!

How did you set up Evolution to get anything from the GAL?? When I go to send an email and select the Global Address List I get an error message "Error loading addressbook".
