    pegasus and exchange

    I badly need a way to use Pegasus as a client with my university's exchange server.  They have disabled all the old IMAP servers, and neither exchange nor outlook meet my needs.  I found a product called DEV, but it's written in Java which is to insecure for me to risk installing.

    Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.

    Do you mean DavMail? Located here?

    http://davmail.sourceforge.net 

    If so this is most likely the only gateway between Pegasus and Exchange server without running your own mail server which is not an option for most people.

    This project is written under Java (as many other cross platform projects) is true, which does not make it insecure.

    Re: pegasus and exchange

    Before you invest any time or $$$ on trying to do this, I would suggest you ask the IT team what kind of email service is being opened up to allow external contact (if any). And while asking that question make sure you get a definitive answer as to what ports and security settings will be required.  My concern is that the Microsoft Exchange server is not really intended to allow traffic in or out of its domain,  and therefore requires an interface to the outside world. This was IMAP and POP3 before that. You could be looking at SOAP or WebDav protocols and I doubt there are many apps that can convert bi-directionally.

    In the past (when I did admin a couple Exchange servers v2000-2010) we would disable POP/IMAP in order to block any non Outlook clients from using. Was a 'security' procedure (right...), client licensing (CAL) under Exchange and of course overhead running the protocol stacks.
