Well, if you read what davmail is you'll see that *it* acts as a
caldav/imap/ldap gateway to OWA (which doesn't provide this) :-)
So that means that you configure you MUA (even mutt if you like) as
normal IMAP client pointing to davmail, which itself then uses OWA as
backend ...
As said, I used this for my previous job (~2 years) and the only thing I
had to do was to reload it from time to time because java (yeah) .. and
memory leaks  (but I was automating that through networkmanager
dispatcher.d script, as my laptop was never powered off - only
suspending/resuming - except for kernel updates)
