Hmmm. I fired up Evolution for the first time in a month and it is now
working flawlessly with the company Exchange 2003 server. If I had to
guess on a cause, it probably had something to do with a McAfee
antivirus install gone horribly wrong necessitating a new install of
Exchange. I'm so glad I don't manage that box...

So, how many people are running OpenExchange with minimal problems?
Getting buy in from management on replacing Exchange is looking pretty
easy these days.
