Thanks for your help, unfortunately, i'm still there and have decided to give up with Evolution. I have been reading other threads on other forums (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...nge/+bug/34199
) and have come to the conclusion that it is a definite problem with Evolution. Like so many others, it was working for me (nothing has changed on the Exchange server side) and then upgraded to 9.10 and then it stopped. Upgraded again to 10.4 and it is still broke. I thought that the upgrade might have fixed something. I can tell you too, (sign of real desperation) that I even tried installing Outlook with WINE, that was a joke, and yes, I am the eternal optimist.
I would give you a thumbs up (thanks) but can't see where to do that
Just one final thing. I live in Marangaroo, a suburb of Perth, Western Australia, and got enthusiastic over Ubuntu 8.10 that i fired up off an APC (Australian Personal Computer) DVD inclusion in the mag. Being a purveyor/builder of fine computers, I thought, "here is an opportunity for people to be introduced to everything they need in an internet/email/home computer at a reasonable cost. So I pulled down my existing Windows based web-site including products etc and put up a site advertising Ubuntu and a low cost system for AU$683. Now here's the rub - On the site (http://www.driven.com.au
) I sing the praises of Ubuntu and Linux in general, emphasizing that Linux does not have the same problems as Windows and is stable and... etc. etc..
So it is my wish that Ubuntu would take out the Exchange option out of Evolution, because it is broke and doesn't look like getting fixed any time soon. It would be so much easier if it didn't pretend to connect to Exchange. It would be better not to have the option rather than have the option and then have it all turn to rubbish as it degenerates into hours on the forums and dead frustration of not being able to get it working. All that does is leaves questions and doubts in the mind of people switching from MS to Linux.
I mean the problems in the posts have been registered back as far as 2006. So when someone who buys one of of the Linux PC's wants to connect to their Exchange server at work and says "I can't get Evolution working with our Exchange server. What's wrong is it something I'm doing, can you help me?", all of a sudden, I look stupid and Linux looks cheap (as in shabby) because I have sung the Linux song and been extravagant with my praises, but in the end, can't help them.
So anyway, what more can I say, except that I hope that someone from the Ubuntu development team reads this.
