DavMail Outlook will be gone! It's a POP/IMAP/SMTP/Caldav/Carddav/LDAP exchange gateway allowing users to use any mail/calendar client (e.g., Thunderbird with Lightning or Apple iCal) with an Exchange server, even from the Internet or behind a firewall through Outlook Web Access. DavMail now supports LDAP gateways to Exchange global addresses and user personal contacts. This allows recipient address completion in a mail composition window and full calendar support with attendees' busy/free display. DavMail supports the CardDav protocol for synchronizing address books. This new feature is sponsored and funded by French Defense / DGA via project Trustedbird. DavMail's main objective is to provide standards-compliant protocols for proprietary Exchange. This includes LDAP for global address books, SMTP to send mails, IMAP to browse the server's messages in any folder, POP for inbox messages retrieval only, Caldav to support calendars, and CardDav to sync personal contacts. Microsoft Exchange can be used by any client that conforms to standards.
