Re: [Evolution] Active Directory

Pardon my being a whiner but doesn't this make Evolution as an Exchange
replacement rather broken. I puchased Evolution under the pretense that
I could replace all major functionality. Being able to query to whom in
corporate the message will be going to is rather critical in nature.

Now that I am done ranting: Is it (or has someone) build a local
OpenLDAP server and connection from it to AD, then pointed Evolution to
the local Open LDAP service for name lookup? Based on my limited RTFM it
seems this not only can be done but is the only route to get Linux to
speak to AD (ie not just modifications to a client but having to
impliment the full server on each host). 

Input greatly apreaciated.

Evolution doesn't support Active Directory, it only supports LDAP
(unless Connector supports AD, but that's a separate product that I
know very little about - same for most every Evolution hacker).

How do I get Evolution to talk to active directory for email account
lookup. I googled around. This is the only major catch for migration
from Outlook to Evolution. It is a 'show stopper' though as I can't type
worth a darn.

Pointing me to documentation is perfectly fine. I googled around and hit
only stuff from RH 6.2 erra.
