This sounds intressting! My boss have 'threatened' to have MS Exchange
running on our W2K machine, which I don't have anything to do with, but
we seem to need it for those customers that MUST run ASP scripts etc. I
don't argue that point, he don't argue my point about it's 'suckiness' :)

Anyway. Having all the 'MS Exchange services' (whatever those are exactly,
I never used it :) seems to be a Good Thing (tm).

If I put my data in an OpenLDAP instead, how do I access it from the
programs that are designed to use a MS Exchange server?

Is there any FAQ/HOWTO about this? Any pointers?

Just talked to a colleague which seems to know a little more about
MS Exchange. It seems to me that the calendar function thingie is what
would be nice to have in an OpenLDAP, easily accessible from all the
MS* software that our clients etc uses...
