IMAP access to Exchange 2007 Calendar

Hi,

We have a user who for one reason or another uses IMAP to access his inbox, in Exchange 2003 you could view your calendar events via IMAP but in Exchange 2007 when you connect via IMAP you can see the Calendar folder but can't download the appointments.   Is there any way round this?

At present calendar retrieval is set to iCalendar on the IMAP settings for our CAS server, i've tried all 4 options without any success.

If this does work are there any specific settings you need to flag on the client, or addresses to use.

I'm using OL2007 as the test client at the moment, but i think the user is using something different, but if i can get it working in OL2007 it will be a start.

Thanks

Jeff

Why don't you use ActiveSync which will synchronize your entire mailbox?

Can you elaborate on this, what Unix clients would be compatible with this, i've had a quick search and can't see anything obvious.

We currently use EAS but only for mobile devices.

ActiveSync is a feature from Microsoft whereby it synchronises your entire mailbox wirelessly. It works on all mobile phones running Windows Mobile.

I appreciate that ActiveSync enables synchronisation to mobile devices wirelessly as we use that, however, as per my earlier message the user in question is trying to access this via a Linux client.  

Apparently he did use Sunbird after a bit of processing of the items, it seems a bit convoluted.  However, now he's on Exchange 2007 his IMAP connections say that the calendar has no items which it ihas, i think Exchange is marking the folder as a special folder in some way and won't allow IMAP access to it.

As far as I know, IMAP is email only.

It would appear that due to changes in Exchange that this will not be possible at present.

Thanks
