Hello,  I just thought I would share this.

Over a year ago, our corporation made the move to Exchange server 
without imap or pop access. :(  This upset many, including the Windows 

I tried to work with Evolution from the day I was forced to change but 
never got comfortable.  I hated the interface (to much like Outlook) and 
it was so slow to get mail.  As a compromise, I would get my mail with 
Evolution and export it to TB to read.

Over the year I looked at other options.  I came across this nice little 
JAVA application that will get the mail through webDAV and save it as an 
mbox file.  Now I don't have to even touch Evolution to get my email.

fetchExc - fetches mail with webDAV from MS Exchange 2000/2003 servers

I hope that something like this can be incorporated into TB.

Hope it helps someone else.
