However, since the organisation has changed to Exchange 2007, I have been unable to as it isn't supported. I understand the problem lies with the significant changes in the web access component in Exchange 2007 and I have tried to find out more info from the web, evolution mailing list, launchpad etc.

You might want to look into OpenChange. It's still fairly early days but 
there is a working exchange proxy from what I can tell. I haven't tried 
this at all yet, but thought it worth mentioning in case you've not 
heard of it.


It's from the Samba crew who got access to all the protocol specs 
following the EU Commission's ruling last year.
