Hi All,

We are currently using Evolution 1.4 on Suse 9.1.  We create our users 
using a Webmin module which creates the users account, home directory, 
IMAP folders etc, and can then run a script afterwards to do further 
user customization.   Any suggestions on the best way of configuring 
Evolution user settings (SMTP,IMAP servers,LDAP addressbooks, etc) using 
a script.  Evolution 1.4 doesn't appear to be able to use variables in 
its configuration files which might partially solve the problem (using 
$LOGNAME etc).  I had a bit of a look at gconftool2 and seems like a 
possible solution.  I found a sample script that can be set to run when 
a user logs in to setup their signature:

but gconftool2 doesn't appear to be able to configure a user's settings 
unless you are logged in as that user (please correct me if I am 
wrong).   I don't really want to resort to modifying the Evolution 
config files using perl but it may be my only option.  Some of the 
config files contain timestamps and encypted passwords so it might be 
pretty messy.  I haven't managed to solve the dependeny issues with 
Evolution 2.x to get it running on Suse 9.1 (subject of a future 
posting?).   Is a solution to my problem likely to be any better or 
worse with Evolution 2.x? 

likely to be exactly the same. we still use gconf.
