I have a question about how to use offlineimap and mutt harmoniously with 
Microsoft Exchange.  

I am posting to offlineimap in the hopes that others on the list have a similar 
configuration and a solution to my problem.  I use offlineimap in cron jobs to 
sync emails between a Linux desktop (Ubuntu 8.04 and mutt) and an email server 
running Microsoft Exchange.

At work I have to keep MS Outlook open on my Windows-XP machine because 
coworkers use its calendar function to schedule meetings.  I almost completely 
ignore its email function because I use mutt on my Linux box.  

The problem is that Outlook seems to automatically mark emails as 'old'.  So 
periodically, on mutt, some emails switched from Read to Old.  Is there an 
option in Outlook to disable this?   I don't use Evolution on Linux.  And I am 
afraid that Evolution may give me the same problem.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Yuelin Li.
