Evolution does not show content of inbox or sent but does show other folders

I have a brand new ubuntu installation
A brand new setup of evolution.
I configured it to use IMAP to access our exchange 2010 server front end on a LAN connection.
Our webmail connection is segregated behind Forefront, so it was not connecting/authing that way.
Even though smartphones have no problem. (sidenote, is there an activesync linux mail client ?)

I have many root folders and several folders underneath my inbox.
total mailsize in inbox is 3.5 GB without subfolders.
The sent is likewise as large. And is likewise empty.

Things I checked already:
View is all
Folder subscription is on and local copy is on

More info:
Thunderbird worky fine.
But thunderbird is missing calender
Tried adding lightening, but it won't add into thunderbird.
Will try finding a diff add on, or if anyone knows how to get lightening into thunderbird 3.1.8 on ubuntu 10 that would be great as well.

How did you go about adding lightning?

Did you ad the sunbird and lightning packages from the repositories?
