Awesome! 

Some more pointers : http://www.go-evolution.org/MAPIProvider#Download -
This page has some information on compiling evolution-mapi (Sadly it is

openchange it is still in svn)

http://www.go-evolution.org/MAPI_FAQ 

Feel free to ping me on IRC. I'm 'jony' in #evolution and usually
available from 0500 UTC to 1200 UTC.
