I'm running Scribe on my USB drive, and hoped it would give me portability between my home office and work office. Everything works fine at home, where I have a dial-up connection, but at work there is a Microsoft Exchange Server and I can't establish a connection.

Is is possible to connect through an exchange server; if so what settings do I need to use?

Exchange admins can enable POP and SMTP access for non-Microsoft clients. Some do and some don't. I've personally used Scribe with Exchange for some years at a previous employer so I know it can work. However it really depends on the setup the local admin has done. You may have to ask them to switch on access for you.

Oh one other thing. There is some chance I may implement MAPI connectivity via a Brutus server. Brutus does CORBRA<->MAPI mapping for open source or non-windows clients. It sits on a windows machine and maps the API's for you.

I _might_ do that... but I might not have time / patience for it either. Still undecided. Maybe if I had a really big customer that wanted it I would be more inclined to do the work. Otherwise there is not enough payoff for me.

Thanks for the reply. I'll make enquiries with our IT department.

I've had a closer look at Brutus, and I won't be implementing support for it. The license is too restrictive for closed source freeware.

Their loss.
