We are very interesting to a linux connector (kmail/kontact for example or evolution)

There is an Open Source connector for Exchange 5.5, 2000 and 2003, It's look like it give open-source mapi on linux.
code name= brutus (

It could be very usefull to have the mapi connector for kerio on Linux

Is it possible or could kerio give the specs of the conenctor to give community develop such connector?

A very good idea. Evolution and Kmail need it

It is certainly possible to implement Brutus support in kmail and almost any other groupware client for that matter.

We have just now started work on a Brutus plugin to Evolution 2.0.x. This will take a few months at the best so don't expect to much noise from us until that work has been completed.

In the mean time... The sample code is actually usefull as is. My current test setup is an Exchange 5.5 server and Fedora Core 1+2 for the client (which is in C++). The sample/test client currently does:

1) Logs on to an Exchange account.

2) Automatic on-the-fly creation of a MAPI profile if it does not exist.

3) Getting a reference to the default message store.

4) Printing the values of all properties of the default message store to stdout.

5) Getting a reference to the root folder in the default message store.

6) Getting a reference to the Contacts folder.

7) Printing the values of all properties of the Contacts folder to stdout.

8) Listing the content of the Contacts folder on stdout by PR_SUBJECT.

9) Subscribing to and waiting for an event on the default message store (a notification sink).

10) A lot of utility functions has been written.

I'll help as much as I can if anybody wants to implement Brutus support in some client application.

Best regards,
