Need MailClientAdapter for Exchange Web Service

Customers who have been using SI B2B Mail Client Adapter to receive mail from Exchange Online using the POP3 protocol will no longer be able to use POP or IMAP due to a change in the company's security policy. (And Microsoft itself) So, as an alternative, I would like to be able to receive mail via Exchenge Web Service.

    We have a similar requirement too as our security team recommeds that we move away from POP3 and IMAP at the earliest.
