I use a similar setting, and I do not have such issue.
Evolution or whatever email client you're using shouldn't make a difference.

The only *problem* with Exchange is that when offlineimap sync, MS
Exchange set the time and date of the email to when the
synchronisation is done and not the date of the original message.
This can be a pain when you do the first sync. All emails will have
the same date ..

I'm not sure if it's something offlineimap could fix.
I didn't do this with Exchange 2003, only Exchange 2007 shows this behaviour
