I started off with evolution-exchange and eventually decided I should 
accept that it doesn't work with Exchange 2007.

I then found posts (after much searching) about a MAPI plugin.  I have 
not been able to get this plugin to load, so that is the focus of my 
current post, unless there are better suggestions.

I am running Fedora 8 and have installed samba4-4.0.0r25768-16.1, 
libmapi-0.6_HOLODECK-8.5, evolution-mapi-provider-20080212.1-4.5, 
evolution-mapi-provider-debuginfo-20080212.1-4.5 via yum.

The posts on exporting variables weren't entirely clear, so I figured I 
would export all suggested to err on the side of caution.  I verified 
that my LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PKG_CONFIG_PATH were already empty and set 
them LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/samba/lib 
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/samba4/lib/pkgconfig to appropriate values.  I saw 
a suggestion to add /opt/samba4 to the PATH but that didn't make sense 
to me, since the binaries should be in /opt/samba4/bin.  I tried both, 
just in case.

When I start Evolution from the shell, I get the following (after 
checking the MAPI plugin box which does not stay checked when quitting):

CalDAV Eplugin starting up ...
libnm_glib_nm_state_cb: dbus returned an error.

I have not been able to figure out what is different for me if others 
have gotten past this point.  I know this is a long post, but "it 
doesn't work" is really a poor post :)  Hopefully I have provided enough 
detail for someone to see the obvious that I've missed.  BTW, do I need 
a special version of Evolution for the plugin?  I'm using 

2.12 is good :)
