intuitive pieces of software released by Microsoft, is a bit of a pain for
me, as reading emails becomes a chore, and I can only send them back out in
plain text format, which isn't especially fabulous for me.

I use Davmail. It works very well for the basics, though I've not got it
working correctly (yet) with Calendar and LDAP.

You can run it locally or on a server (I have it running on a VPS) so phone
or Gmail can periodically get mail.
