Sorry, I missed this bit:

Check out the comments in this source file that start with:

# Oh, lord help us.

There is a MAPI version of the folder builder in that source file that will
work *much* faster - but until I get my hands on an Exchange server, I can't
really test it.

If you look further in the source file for where BuildFolderTreeMAPI() is
commented out, and you can manage to test it, I would be interested to know
your experiences with the code - except that you may find the exact same
exception we just plugged will be raised in this MAPI code - and a similar
fix will also work.
