Exchange access in KDE

I'd like to be able to access my company exchange server in KDE.  I've bot the IMAP portion working in Kontact, but I'm unsure of how to get the address book and other collaboration features working.  Is there any way to do this while we wait for OpenChange integration in KDE?

brother.. change to GNOME to get best performance :D

Yeah, but shadowland is maybe referring to Exchange additional capabilities. It doesn't have only email, every pop/imap client can exchange mail with it, but what about if you need public agendas, contacts, meeting approval by email, calendar and so on ?
It ain't that easy...

Have you tried Evolution? It has collaboration plug-ins for Exchange and has alot of built in functionality. Might be worth your time to explore it. I've run Evolution with Exchange before and it worked pretty decently...and that was an older version. They are up to 2.6 now.

got the same problems as you, KDE is not the problem (neither GNOME is), problem is the lack of documentation for developing plugins.
I'm currently trying to replace win installations with Outlook in an Exchange network where users heavily rely on exchange benefits: email, contacts, meetings, schedules, tasks and so on.
If you're looking for a complete exchange access (email confirm meetings, shared contacts or agendas, shared mail boxes, ...) I think even OpenChange or other solutions are quite far from original Exchange/Outlook pair
