My company just moved all our emails to an exchange server 2007. I know there is an extension to connect to an exchange server for evolution but it doesn't seem to be compatible with the 2007 version.

I manage to connect to the exchange server using DavMail

Ever wanted to get rid of Outlook ? DavMail is a POP/IMAP/SMTP/Caldav/LDAP exchange gateway allowing users to use any mail/calendar client (e.g. Thunderbird with Lightning or Apple iCal) with an Exchange server, even from the internet or behind a firewall through Outlook Web Access. DavMail now includes an LDAP gateway to Exchange global address book to allow recipient address completion in mail compoze window and full calendar support with attendees free/busy display.

There are some others such as KMail and Mailody (both for KDE), which advertise Exchange support, although on numerous sites I've found that either IMAP must be enabled or certain features such as the Exchange Calendar would not work -- which is vital in the workplace if you need to receive notices of meetings and such.

A similar question was brought up on Slashdot a little while ago, and judging by the comments it appears that a virtual machine of Windows running Outlook is the way to go if you want to ensure compatibility.
