Thanks for the suggestion.  I'll have a look when I get some time.  To
be honest, I'm using openchangeclient on Devuan and there it works OK.
It was only when I tried to find out why one of the domains refused to
let me authenticate that I turned to a Debian stretch machine that had
a network sniffer installed and noticed the issue.

Hmm, looks like I may be in the same boat.  I am currently looking at
openchangeclient only to escape the horror that is OWA.  If you got any
suggestions, I'm all ears.  I only need something that lets individual
users interact with Exchange, not a full-blown server replacement.

BTW, the GitHub project has a newer version, 2.3-VULCAN, released on
2015-05-17, but yes the project looks rather dead :-(
