Evolution connector problems


Hi,

I am a happy user of Evolution... it connects to my personal (imaps) accounts and to the Exchange server at my office..

Besides that Evolution completely crashes when I try to open the Exchange calendar (!), it works fine for my own account.

What I am unable to do is opening calendars from other colleagues, while I DO have access to read them...

While running FC2, with Evolution 1.4.6, it was working fine. After the upgrade to FC3 with Evolution 2.0, I lost the possibility to open other people's folders.. I get a permission denied, or 'other error'.. and yes, I have verified that I want to open a 'calendar' of the person, and not the 'inbox'.

I am currently using the Evolution 2.0 as shipped with FC3, and have run all possible updates..


I'm curious if other people experience the same thing or if there's a problem from my part..

It's an Exchange 2000 server by the way.

Was this a upgrade from fc2 -> fc3 ? If so I had a similar problem when running Slackware. It seamed that some of the config options form the old evolution install were causing problems with Evolution 2 . After a few hours of trying to track down the real problem, I took a sledge hammer to my .evolution .gnome .gconf .gnome2 .gome2_private and things got better.

rm -rf <the above listed dir's>

Things haven't gotten better, unfortunately..

I have removed all folders, but still no go..
I am currently moved to an Exchange 2003 server, so my crashing problem is gone..

Though, When opening someone elses Calendar, I still get the 'Permission Denied' message .
Additionaly, I tried to open My own calendar as 'someone elses calendar' and that worked (hey... why does this one work??? does Evolution try to open tasks as well? because I only have access to calendar of others, not to mail, tasks or contacts)

Now that I tried to 'subscribe' to my own calendar, I want to remove it as well.... WHAAAA again no go... the Evolution does not seem to be capable of deleting a once created calendar....

Can someone help me out on this one? Where is this stored? Because removing all /tmp folders related to evolution, ~/.evolution and./gconf/apps/evolution, Evolution STILL knows what calendar had been in there... what folders am I missing here...

Thanks in advance...

Oh, btw, a 'find ~ -name *evo*' does not tell me anything related to evolution anymore... do I still miss a folder ?
