[Evolution] Exchange Server 2003

OS: Linspire 5.0.59. Connectiong to my firm's network system through VPN. Network: Windows 2003 Server. Exchange Server 2003. Have installed Evolution 2.0.2 with Exchange Connector. OWA on Exchange Server 2003 is enabled, and can access Outlook through a web browser (

I have tried to connect to Exchange Server 2003 in Evolution I get one of two error messages:

1. 'Error while Scanning folders in "Exchange server". Could not connect to Evolution Exchange backend process: No such file or directory'; or

2. I am asked for my password, and after entering it: 'Could not authenticate to server. (Password incorrect?) Enter password for Victor Warner at Andyton'.

What settings I have entered are reproduced below.

I would be grateful for any help in getting connected to Exchange Server.
