So I'm in the unfortunately position of having to connect to an Exchange 2003 Server with Evolution. Using the newest version (2.4.1) I can get mail and use the global contact book. Problem is, sending mail doesn't seam to work some of the time and attempting to access my calendar crashes evolution. The debugging messages says "Trying to connect to blahblahblah" and it dies. Anyone else experience this problem and find a workaround?
I have similar problems. I can neither open my contacts from the Exchange Server nor can I open the exchange calendar since upgarding to 2.4.1.
I detected one more strange thing. In the Properties menu I cannot see the "OWA-URL" field any more when selecting the exchange protocol. I only get the username field. Is there something wrong with evolution/exchange plugin or did something change with the new version? Where do I set up the exchange server now? Why did the OWA-URL field disappear in 2.4.1?
thanks for answering.
I tried to set up a new connection with ximian-connector-setup but I have no information about the GC-Server from my service provider so I cannot enter something and hence I'm not able finish the connector-setup.
Do you have any idea how to guess a possible server name for the GC-Server?
After some googeling I read somewhere that connection problems with the contacts/calendar are supposed to be a bug in 2.4.1. Can anybody confirm this and is there a workaround for this? Or may it be a misconfiguration?
well, the admin is me.
I have to ask my internet service provider for this. But I read a lot of FAQs already and they don't mention a GC server anywhere. So I fear that they don't have a GC server at all.
And the question is if finishing the ximian-connector solves the problem of not beeing able to open the calendar/contacs.
I am still having problems with my calendar. I upgrade evolution-exchange data server to 220.127.116.11 which fixed all the other problems I was having (I had been using ximian-connector for the setup from the start).
The interesting thing is the global calendar for my group works just fine, but the personal calendar just for me crashes evolution....
EDIT: I'm sorry.. evolution doesn't crash with my personal calendar/tasks anymore... but when you click the check box to make either of them visible it just automagically unchecks it again and doesn't display anything... ah well, never use those features much anyway. At least the mail and the global address book work well....
thanks for information. I will try to install evolution-exchange data server to release 18.104.22.168. Maybe I have to compile it on my own as I'm using Ubuntu Linux and they don't have the new version in the package repository yet.
From where did you get the new release of evolution-exchange data server? Can you please post the link?
