Query MS Exchange Inbox

I have been looking for some information on the net to use ruby and
query my microsoft exchange inbox. I thought exchange was using IMAP
but i guess i was wrong because i receive an “authentication not
supported” error when i try and login. I tried both authentication
types that i was able to find. So now i am on a quest to find out what
the differences are so i can make my ruby app query my inbox. Any help
would be appreciated.

Exchange supports IMAP4 but it’s optional and turned off in default.
For the protocol, basic login (+SSL/TLS) and NTLM are supported but
CRAM-MD is not.

You’ll have to read up on MAPI, it’s Microsoft’s way of doing their own
thing. The only third party application I know of that will talk MAPI
is
evolution.
