Evolution and Exchange Server

I've installed Evolution and the Evolution Exchange Connector so that I may connect to our Exchange server in the office. It runs fine except for one problem.

When I go to add my account so I can connect to our Exchange server, it asks for my username. I enter my user name, go click forward and the forward button is greyed out still. I've tried entering "", "username@domain.local" and nothing works, it's still greyed out.

Is there something that I'm missing? Thanks for any help in advance.

I think you have to enter the user and domain like mapping a drive: DOMAIN/Username

Also make sure you have access to the GC

Easy fix


Before running Evolution enter the following commands:

$ cd /usr/bin
$ ./ximian-connector-setup-2.2

Enter the necessary info and then run Evolution.

Now start entering the necessary info into Evolution.

You should be good to go now.
