[ # ] Connect to Microsoft Exchange Server from Linux
July 1st, 2010 under Linux

The University of Bern provides calendars, folders, address books and mail with the Microsoft Exchange solution. Since I’m an Arch-Linuxer I couldn’t use Microsoft Outlook. The webinterface to the exchange server is also tiresome because without IE you only have a “light” version.

After some time googleing for a solution for liunx I came along novell’s evolution mail. It should provide exchange capabilities but somehow I couldn’t get it to work.

The nice little tool that solved all my problems was DavMail. It is a wrapper that allows you to access all your exchange data via standard protocols.

For instance, you can access you calendar via the standard caldav protocol and thus you Mozilla Sunbird or Mozilla Lightning.
