which version of Evolution we are talking about, please? The 3.28.0+
does read SRV records and other stuff. Ideally Edit->Accounts->
Add->Collection Account, which knows quite interesting things.

You might do better on the evolution mailing list (now in Cc),

I'd avoid cross-posting, though you are correct that the evolution-list 
is better for evolution-specific questions.

It would also be useful to delegate the various protocols'
autodiscover mechanisms to the back ends, instead of having protocol-
specific knowledge for EWS, ActiveSync, IMAP and other stuff hard-
coded into Evolution itself.

Already done and possible, in 3.28.0+. The "old" (and still used)
autoconfig uses the information based on the domain part of the email,
while this information is stored on a GNOME server.

Hello Milan,

Sorry, I should have specified the version. My version is perhaps old, 3.22.

I am glad to know that the latest version implement DNS lookup. I wanted
to be sure that I did not forget a standard, and also wanted to check
that the RFC was widely used.

I will make sure to post in the right list next time.

Kind regards,
