OpenChange

OpenChange was an open source project to implement the MAPI protocol based heavily around Samba, particularly the early Samba4 branch of the project.

The primary target client was Microsoft Outlook which contacted the Microsoft Exchange server over DCE/RPC. While the MAPI protocol is not NDR based, our PIDL code generation tool was used extensively.

This lead to a clear connection with the Samba project, the tools and infrastructure of Samba were very attractive to the young OpenChange project, and indeed early versions of the project started as a friendly fork of Samba.
