And, I suspect, exceptionally unlikely. If you choose to use a server product which uses a proprietry protocol kept secret so that only the server vendor can release compatible client software, you've pretty much screwed your ability to pick and choose client software.

I suppose it might be possible to reverse engineer the protocol but I can only imagine this functionality making Mozilla prooducts if a third party does the reverse engineering and releases full specs to work from. I know that the (now GPL) Ximian connector allows access to some features of exchange but I don't know if they've released documentation that other people could work from.
