One open source project that implements a pretty impressive interface to exchange is http://davmail.sourceforge.net Maybe you can get hints on how to deal with the ideosycrasies of MS coding from there. Unfortunately I cannot use this, and your proposed solution, since my Exchange server is behind an RSA-Token-"secured" gateway. I'm planning to use the org-outlook protocol http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/org-outlook.el even if this means that I need to have an Outlook-instance running. Good luck! Holger
