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 well-behaved. 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.
