I used to use thunderbird and a thunderbird plugin a long time ago, but I think that was a screen scraper type. It logged into the web server in the background and used http requests to get the email. The same way the webMail Yahoo plugin works.

Then, why not using IMAP, or SMTP/POP3 (horror)? I think they go that route because it's easier and it's not subject to licensing. IMAP, SMTP, and POP3 are not allowed at my workplace. It was a big deal for the security group to allow web access. I don't think MS would let an Open Source EAS client live -- it's been around too long for there not to be an attempt at making one. But there doesn't seem to be one out there. Check out this blog: New to Exchange ActiveSync Development? - Dan's WebDAV 101 - Site Home - MSDN Blogs There are many reasons to use the web versus EAS. Personally, I use it because I have to -- my linux workstation is not company standard, nor is my home desktop. That means I can't use the MS Outlook EAS connections to the server -- my machines do not meet the security requirement standards. They are not insecure, they are just not single boot windows XP SP3, running a specific version of commercial anti-virus and firewall applications. It's just the nature of the beast with large corporations not involved in software development (85,000 people) that work place standards are a several years behind. I get to live outside those standards, because it's part of my job description to work in non-standard environments.

4.  03/05/2013, 07:08 AM Specifically for calendar/notes/tasks syncing EAS is a really good protocol (very fast and relieable) compared to google sync (which i'm also using with frantids patch...). And synergy can show all it's power on webOS with EAS. On top besides the real MS Exchange Server, there are several 'own-cloud' groupware server-products having EAS as connector. All this said i'm no MS f@nboy my job is rather to hack on Linux bash. Rnp likes this.
5.  03/05/2013, 12:53 PM Most of the existing Exchange connectors for Linux desktops, like Evolution, use an Outlook protocol (MAPI, EWS, and related protocols) rather than EAS. The reason is that EAS is geared towards downloading and syncing some subset of your Exchange data while the Outlook protocols can access everything on the server that Outlook can, including configuring server-side mail filters, advanced meeting scheduling (free/busy, room reservation, on behalf of), etc.

7.  03/15/2013, 08:24 AM Copying accounts and services from extracted webos-doctor to desktop build didn't work. Now in open webOS desktop build I have option to add EAS account, but in detailed configuration I still only have option for POP or IMAP account setting. Inside luna-desktop-binaries folder, there is MOJOMAIL sub folder. Inside MOJOMAIL folder there are IMAP, SMTP and POP subfolders. I think there should be added EAS folder also, but I can't find corresponding folder in webos-doctor from which I would copy it to the MOJOMAIL sub folder inside luna-desktop-binaries folder.

15.  07/05/2013, 06:52 AM I don't know how difficult that would be... quite a time ago (I think it was webOS 2.0) I browsed through the jsjsjs-$service$ $code$ $that$ $was$ $responsible$ $for$ $syncing$ $contacts$ $and$ $calendar$ $events$. $And$ $there$ $were$ $quite$ $a$ $lot$ $of$ $hacks$ $with$ $a$ $comment$ $like$ &$quot$;$EAS$ $needs$ $XYZ$ $here$&$quot$;... $If$ $that$ $is$ $still$ $all$ $in$ $there$, $then$ $one$ $could$ $try$ $to$ $just$ $collect$ $all$ $necessary$ $files$ $from$ $webOs$ $3$.$0$.$5$, $build$ $an$ $ipkg$ $and$ $try$ $to$ $install$ $that$ $on$ $open$ $webos$. I have not really looked at the jsjsjs-$service$ $code$ $in$ $open$ $webos$ ($it$ $is$ $still$ $on$ $my$ $list$, $but$ $somewhere$ $down$ $there$, $sadly$, $the$ $very$ $rare$ $spare$ $time$ $I$ $have$ $that$ $I$ $manage$ $to$ $invest$ $into$ $webOS$ $is$ $usually$ $consumed$ $with$ $fiddling$ $in$ $Preware$ $2$), $but$ $I$ $think$ $it$ $did$ $not$ $change$ $a$ $lot$... $If$ $I$ $get$ $the$ $new$ $alpha$ $of$ $open$ $webos$ $running$ $on$ $my$ $galaxy$ $nexus$ $sometime$ $soon$, $I$'$ll$ $just$ $try$ $it$, $I$ $think$. If there are binary files used for EAS sync, we will have a slight problem, though... at least I will have one, because I don't really have a clue how these binary services really work. And it might get issues with differing library versions and stuff. So let's hope it is all in java script. Just came to my mind after writing all this. From what I saw google and facebook are pure JSJSJS $services$.
17.  07/06/2013, 04:15 AM Microsoft expects client developers to pay for patent licensing (in the US; software patents are not valid in Europe and some other places). Motorola got sued by Microsoft because they didn't pay. There may be an exception for non-commercial open source use: https://www.microsoft.com/openspecif...s/default.aspx FirefoxOS has an EAS client written in JSJSJS: https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia-email-libs-and-more although Firefox/FirefoxOS uses a "newer" version of Javascript that isn't an official standard nor compatible with Webkit/V8 and other JSJSJS $engines$, $so$ $the$ $code$ $probably$ $won$'$t$ $work$ $out$ $of$ $the$ $box$.
