The langue spoken by Outlook can be downloaded and compiled
today in a GUI client:

This is built on libmapi from openchange.org. Openchange provides a
commandline client around the same library so you can access mailboxes,
back them up, send email (eg from a webapp), create a public folder etc.
Try it out for yourself. All using native protocols. 

On the server side, and available for shipping with Intrepid if the
server team decide to do so, is mapiproxy.openchange.org. As you can
imagine, an effective proxy indicates a full understanding of the
server-side protocols so it is just a matter of engineering completion
to produce a full serverside solution. Openchange can be viewed as a
thin wrapper around existing FOSS.
