Kerberize it how?

MS Exchange uses a proprietary communications protocol so it's not
clear how Kerberos authentication even works in Exchange [1].

If you're talking about using IMAP4, last I checked MS Exchange does
not support Kerberos w/ IMAP4 at all.


[1] There is some new "Exchange Protocols" documentation released as
part of the EU settlement that might include such details.
