Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a UNIX based MAPI client that can work with Microsoft Exchange Server?

I know that I can use POP3, but I'd prefer not to!

Which UNIX are you using?

The dtmail tha comes with CDE can use MAPI (at least in Solaris 2.6)

MAPI is an API (Mail API), not a network protocol.  I believe Exchange uses a proprietary back-end protocol, as well as POP.

If you don't want POP, you'll have to use a genuine Microsoft product to talk to the Exchange back-end.  Luckily, such a beast exists!  See http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/download/unix.htm.
