This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Bug reports and problems specific to development version of Ubuntu should be reported on Launchpad so that developers can see, track and fix these issues." – Braiam, Alvar, Eric Carvalho, Florian Diesch, LiveWireBT
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The current official answer would be, that it currently does not since there seems to be a calendar but no mail app among the core apps. wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/CoreApps –  LiveWireBT Nov 16 '13 at 10:35

Yes, see this link.

The Microsoft Exchange protocol will be supported by the mail app but there is no guarantee that it will be an Open Source library.

Also there is no guarantee that the calendar app will support it. For sure: there will be also alternative apps to use on the Windows phone to support this protocol.

Someone said something about that he or his company is investigating something on a mailing list. Half a year ago. If this is the best source currently available, then the answer must be "No, it will not". By the way, letter replacements like in ¢anonical, ₹ed Hat and £inux Foundation are utterly immature. –  LiveWireBT Nov 16 '13 at 10:30
There is no "must", the future is always unknown. The support for a protocol can be implemented externally as a module or a library for future uses. The Linux developers try to support as many protocols as possible. If they can't, usually is provided a non-open source (never suggested) solution. Please feel free to contact them personally or chose a different solution (I always suggest to try first) if you need the protocol to work or for important reasons. Be conscious that Linux is Open-Source and that you can also develop your own software/module/firmware if you want. Good evening. –  Lorenzo Ancora Nov 17 '13 at 16:00
