Exchange 2010/Ubuntu 10.04/Evolution - mail


Hello linux fans,

I have tried several guides but none of them works. I am working on this more than one month, and it seems to be useless.

http://www.petenetlive.com/KB/Article/0000378.htm
# did not solve my problem but helped

http://www.jones.ec/blogs/a/entry/evolution_evolution_mapi_and_exchange
#some packadges are not in His repositories, I have also changed some lines in cfg as he requested but it does not make a difference

# Run ldbedit -H ~/.evolution/mapi_profiles.ldb
# Within the profile LDB entry, append:
seal: true

http://www.webupd8.org/2010/06/install-evolution-230-in-ubuntu-1004.html
#also some packages are missing, once I have installed version 2.30 form there evolution has completely crashed and closed when I have opened it. So I was not able to see the status.
I had to revert back to the original version by commands ppa purge. Is there any another complete repo for 2.30 from which I can update my version to 2.30 once more also with dependences?

this case:
I am able to authenticate with the exchange server, first of all I have downloaded some of the directories, but later on I received errors in connections and seems to be that the evolution has problems with downloading mails and directories threes.
I am not able to send or receive e-mails. I am attaching the screenshot. http://www.floorripper.com/download/evolution.png

By the way normal OWA settings is not working at all. My colleague is using MAC and Safari and he has no issues with owa settings. (but he might be on exchange2007). When we tried his account on mine ubuntu, It was not working either.

My system:

Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS

dpkg -l | grep evolution
ii evolution 2.28.3-0ubuntu10.3
ii evolution-common 2.28.3-0ubuntu10.3
ii evolution-data-server 2.28.3.1-0ubuntu5
ii evolution-data-server-common 2.28.3.1-0ubuntu5
ii evolution-exchange 2.28.3-0ubuntu1
ii evolution-indicator 0.2.8-0ubuntu1
ii evolution-mapi 0.28.3-0ubuntu1
ii evolution-plugins 2.28.3-0ubuntu10.3
ii evolution-webcal 2.28.0-1
ii libebackend1.2-0 2.28.3.1-0ubuntu5
ii libebook1.2-9 2.28.3.1-0ubuntu5
ii libecal1.2-7 2.28.3.1-0ubuntu5
ii libedata-book1.2-2 2.28.3.1-0ubuntu5
ii libedata-cal1.2-6 2.28.3.1-0ubuntu5
rc libedata-cal1.2-7 2.30.3-0ubuntu1~ppa0
ii libedataserver1.2-11 2.28.3.1-0ubuntu5
rc libedataserver1.2-13 2.30.3-0ubuntu1~ppa0
ii libedataserverui1.2-8 2.28.3.1-0ubuntu5

Evolution settings:
Server type: Exchange MAPI
server: 1.1.1.1
username: iamtheuser
domain name: thisdomain

Exchange is 2010 (according to the new webmail loook)

Do you have a clue what might be wrong? Revert back to windows is not the best way, only because of emails...windows sucks..are you with me?


Thanks a lot

Floorripper

I would get rid of all of your evolution files first.

I do not run evolution but a simple search shows that evolution 2.30.3 is in the Ubuntu 10.10 repo, at least the source package.

Getting it from there would probably work a lot better in Ubuntu 10.04 than any other place.

From what I can see very quickly is that at least one of your possible solutions is trying to use packages from Debian. This is probably not a real good idea as Ubuntu does use a lot of different paths than Debian.

Hello Widget,

So what do you recommend? Uninstall it like this?
$ apt-get autoremove evolution --purge

Insert a 10.10 repositories inside my Lucid 10.04 and then install it from the repos to the 10.04?

Do you now where can I get the important PPAs for that evolution?
Or should I insert the whole 10.10 repos to my 10.04, install and them remove them all?

Floorripper,

This is the only step which I have not tried, because I am afraid that I will spoil my running system.

I would use the purge command and then save your sources.list as sources.list.def.

Create a file with for the 10.10 repos and put save it as sources.list. When your install is done you can just delete it or rename it and rename your original back.

You will need to run apt-get update after each name change.

Have no idea if there is a ppa. I don't use evolution and I use Debian. No ppas here. Run a search.
