I *believe* (again, no experience doing it myself) that you use IMAP for 
KMail.  For KOrganizer, there's a plugin for connecting to an Exchange 
server.  Googling got me a few pages with instructions on connecting 
kaddressbook using LDAP.  Most of what I can say about this comes from 
googling around for info.

Oh, I misread those pages, I thought that was for kolab to connect to 
exchange, which would have allowed you to run kolab as a middleman between 
exchange and kontact...
