If your Exchange is backed by ActiveDirectory, you can use the normal
LDAP tools/libraries/Python modules to get at the data; you wouldn't
necessarily even need to extract & import, since you can get to it
directly.  Of course, I know nothing about the limitations or needs of
CMF, so maybe that isn't possible.

The most costly of all follies is to believe passionately in the
