Can you remember the exact problem?  Can you re-enable that code and see
what it was?  If necessary, we can add some extra diagnostic code to see
where the EntryIDs differ, and look if there is any way we can normalize it.

Yes, I haven't committed it because, as you said, it currently works <wink>.
Fortunately and thankfully, you added a bug about it (even attaching a
patch) so there is no way I can forget.  As I am sure you can see from
Tony's stats though, getting the MAPI version working is a much better
option!  I'm sure we can make the MAPI verion work - the MAPI extensions
were developed against an exchange server.
