We have had outlook 2000/2003 working (*well, um...) with cyrus, but
like paul says, there are much better imap clients available - outlook
works (*well, um...) with exchange, and there are some frustrating
things that it does and does not do with imap. We are busy moving to
thunderbird for email, still looking for a collaboration client...
Hope that helps,
