It's not supposed to be used with exchange.
The whole insight principle is that you don't need exchange anymore. It's
a migration tool to open protocols(IMAP, LDAP).
The idea is that you have this outlook plugin (insight connector) which
allows you save "special" data (i.e. calendars, tasks, notes, journal,
Contacts, etc.) to imap folders. Actually you're saving them to an
outlook personal folder which the connector synchronizes to an IMAP
backend - very clever.
Insight client for Unix can also use the data in the special folders to
see the calendar data (and probably a couple of other things also). It
doesn't allow you to connect to exchange natively. You can use exchange
as your IMAP and LDAP backend, if you're crazy enough, though.
You need the evolution Exchange connector if you want to connect to
Exchange natively. You won't see an open sourced exchange connector just
like you won't see an open sourced CVS plugin for VStudio (NDA signings
required to develop pretty much anything that interoperates with MS
products and open standards).

I had to do the same(debian).
