Re: [Evolution] Global Address List

From what I gather, GAL works using simple LDAP. To connect to the server via
LDAP companies typically require you to be part of the private network.
Which mean that GAL works when connected to the intranet, and when VPNning
into your company's network.

In my case, when I VPN GAL works, but the exchange connection breaks,
because my company requires the use of a Proxy server for HTTP when using
the VPN service, and Evolution 2.8 does not work via Proxy (the one you
setup in Gnome's control panel). 

Also Evo 2.8 exchange connector crashes 3 or 4 times a day in my ubuntu edgy
work laptop, and the evolution team does not provide packages of new or beta
releases for the popular distributions 

I tried to compile Evolution myself and it is really messy, and I could not
succeed; the evolution team provides no howto or anything.

I'm really very annoyed by all this and I'm looking for alternatives to
Evolution for exchange mail retrieval, but don't seem to find any...

Any tips to get this working (error message is attached)?

In the Receive Options tab of the exchange account, there are a few
settings for GAL, including server name...the provider has been no help,
is there any way to get this setting from my old outlook settings?

Thanks in advance.
