afaik exchange also has a 'smtp plugin'. In other words, you can use smtp to communicate with an exchange, maybe this is interesting.

Is this plugin to be implemented on the server side?

Because the company will not change their server configuration, I will have to make it work from my side (software).

you want to send email or access "sent mail"? there should be plenty of sample indy code for sending simple email via smtp server (exchange works via smtp)

I just want to be able to sent email using Indy.
Don't need to access any inboxes etc....

But I am not sure how exchange servers etc words but as far as I know I should use IMAP4 component of Indy. I have tried to build a small demo for testing purposes.

I start to connect to server but then I receives a EidProtocolException something about ".... in invalid state...." if that can help.

This might get you started.  Code sample is for older version of indy but easy to fix compile errors and get it working on latest version.
