The choice of the server is not yours, if you are working for a
company. I'm also confronted with an Exchange server @work.

Thomas has started with Calendar integration. AFAIK, you need EWS in
order to access it on an Exchange server.

And even IMAP access is not always possible. IMAP access information for
that server was hidden in my company, and it took me a while to find it
out. Other people might fail to get IMAP access for an Exchange server,
depending on a company's policy.
