Evolution-exchange is far and away the more stable and complete, and
it's definitely the one you should use.  I had no problems with this
backend for the last year or so that I used it; it was very stable and

The evolution-mapi backend is (IMO) barely usable (it's NOT usable for
me, and I have very minimal needs: just email and basic group
calendaring).  I'm not sure it works with Exchange 2003 at all.

Here's the trick: evolution-exchange will not work with Exchange 2007 or
above: it's a dead-end project in that sense.  So you're in luck since
you have Exchange 2003: use evolution-exchange and be happy.

And you can hope that by the time your IT guys decide to update to
Exchange 2007, the exchange-mapi backend will be working.
