10.3: A fix for an Address Book / Exchange sync problem Apps
Panther's Mail and Address Book applications can use WebDAV to synchronize contacts and mail with Exchange 2000 and 2003 servers. However, there are a couple of problems with it (which I'm following here). The biggest is that if you installed iSync 1.3 before you installed Panther, you won't have the library you need to sync with Exchange.

John Perry figured out that you can extract ExchangeConduit.bundle from the iSync installed on Panther CD 2, then put it in /System -> Library -> SyncServices. That made my sync work, and it seems to be working still.

I downloaded iSync 1.3 from the apple website and reinstalled the package, after which everything worked for me.

10.3: A fix for an Address Book / Exchange sync problem

The linked article mentions using iSync w Exchange in a multi-domain environment, which the author claimed would not allow iSync to work. The limitation was that OWA requires login in that case to be formatted domain\username. I found that, if I entered that in the Address Book preferences, iSync would crash. However, the cause was Address book being too clever for its own good.
In the Exchange Server preference sheet in Address Book, when you enter your username, **it automatically appends that username at the end of the Outlook Web Access Server URI** That URI usually should not include the "domain\" part. I missed that repeatedly b/c the textbox is too short to show the entire URI. If you edit the URI by hand and remove the "domain\" part, iSync works again.
