Why specifically do you need this?

To connect to my university's exchange email. Granted, I can just download the package and run it from my home directory.

No that's fine. I just wanted a justification. It's up to date and has seen a recent release, so as long as it's not a massive pain to build, I see no reason not to include it. Cheers

Thanks a lot!

@anaknaga just need clarification if you're asking for the server or workstation version of davmail?

@Justin I'm just using the workstation version. I think that's the most common usage tbh. Thanks a lot!

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over a year. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
