Plain http doesn't work, as port 80 on that machine is closed. Port 443
is the only one open.
I can access OWA just fine, either with a web browser, or with the
Prompt$ wget --http-user=MYDOMAIN\\myusername --http-passwd=mypasswd
This pulls back the correct index.htm page, no problems.
When I enter the same url into the OWA-location box in evolution I get
the same-old "authentication error" problem. I can take a deeper look
into it with ethereal, but all I can confirm is that the connection gets
made, not that anything is sent correctly as the whole conversation is

I'm using evolution on FC4 connecting to exchange with no major
problems. I just used the Create new mail account dialog from within
preferences to setup the account and it works fine.
You also need to make sure you can access Outlook Web Mail from the
machine your using as that is what it uses to talk to the exchange
Can you try plain http and see if that work?

If it's any help, it's just regular old http-basic authentication on

Any ideas? I'm comfortable building from source if that's
necessary...anything to get rid of this other windows box under my
