    I have been looking for some information on the net to use ruby and
    query my microsoft exchange inbox. I thought exchange was using IMAP
    but i guess i was wrong because i receive an "authentication not
    supported" error when i try and login. I tried both authentication
    types that i was able to find. So now i am on a quest to find out what
    the differences are so i can make my ruby app query my inbox. Any help
    would be appreciated.

    Exchange supports IMAP4 but it's optional and turned off in default.
    For the protocol, basic login (+SSL/TLS) and NTLM are supported but
    CRAM-MD is not.
