I finally have a reasonable solution for working with email, contacts, and calendar information on the campus exchange server. I’ve written about this before and never been totally satisfied with my previous solutions. Now I am happy to say that using DavMail has been great.
I have struggled for a while to use our campus resources from my mac(s) at home and at work. In particular, I haven’t had much luck getting any email program to successfully auto-complete email addresses using LDAP. To clarify, the campus has an exchange server that is running Exchange 2007 (as near as I can tell). I know the server name, port, and have determined some other bits from various posts elsewhere. The single biggest issue is that the LDAP server has an expired certificate, so that was the final roadblock that I recently overcame.
