Unhappy Evolution Exchange Connector in Red Hat is different in Fedora


Up to now I have been using Evolution on a Red Hat EL 4 AS distro to access my Email inbox (and calendar, etc) on a Microsoft Exchange server.

I recently changed to Fedora Core 6 and it so happens that the Evolution connector in this distro can only access Exchange servers through OWA, whilst in the Red Hat version you can configure the exchange server directly.

Can anyone confirm that this is a Red Hat-specific feature of the Evolution client?

I don't have the option to access the Exchange server through OWA because this functionality is disabled. Is there another connector for Evolution (or another application) on Fedora Core 6 that will allow me to configure the Exchange server as I did in the Red Hat version?

Thanks.

On your RHEL 4 run "rpm -qa |grep -i evolution" to see what packages you have. (Also "rpm -qa |grep -i exch" just for the heck of it).

Then run same on the FC6 box to see if you have any on RHEL that aren't here.

I'd be interested to know the answer. I hadn't tried to do Evolution on my RHEL boxes as they are servers and I use FC for personal workstation.

This is what i get:

On RHEL:


rpm -qa | grep -i "evolution"
evolution-data-server-1.0.2-9.rhel4.1
evolution-connector-2.0.2-10.rhel4.1
evolution-2.0.2-8

rpm -qa | grep -i "exch"
(No results)

On Fedora Core 6:

rpm -qa | grep -i evolution
beagle-evolution-0.2.13-1.fc6
evolution-data-server-1.8.3-4.fc6
evolution-2.8.3-2.fc6
evolution-sharp-0.11.1-10.fc6

rpm -qa | grep -i "exch"
(No results)

So on FC6 you're missing "evolution-connector" which is what does the Exchange connect. From my read however it uses the OWA url. Are you sure it is "turned off" on Exchange or is it that they restrict which IPs can use it thereby allowing your RHEL server to get to it. You might want to look at the RHEL configuration to see exactly what it is doing to connect to Exchange.

To get the "evolution-connectort" assuming you can get to the internet from your FC6 box you should just be able to run:

yum install evolution-connector

(Leave out the version stuff - yum will determine which is appropriate.)

Once you do that you should be able to setup the way you did in RHEL.

Most of my Google hits for this show that OWA is the way it works.
