I'm using the new mapi plugin to try to access an Exchange 2007 server.
I have the correct user id (not my e-mail name), password, and domain.
I've done the necessary exports to get the plugin to load and I've set
up the new account. Here is what I see when I try to authenticate:

get 1upmc-acct\bilora mapi://mydomain%5cmyuserid myserver net/
Find Items 9
Couldn't Get password 9
get 1upmc-acct\bilora mapi://mydomain%5cmyuser myserver net/
Find Items 9
Couldn't Get password 9
(evolution:8545): e-data-server-DEBUG: Loading categories from
(evolution:8545): e-data-server-DEBUG: Loaded 29 categories

Any ideas on how to get this working? I was able to get IMAP working but
I would also like to be able to use MAPI.

I could have sworn that at some point in the mapi account set up, there
was a box to type in the domain name. Now I don't see it and I'm using
"mydomain\userid" for userid.

Rick, check whether the 'Exchange MAPI' plugin is loaded ( from Edit ->

Yes there is a field for entering your domain name. and in the user-id
field entering a user-id is sufficient.

Yes, I've checked and it's clear the plugin is loaded. I wouldn't have
been able to create the mapi account and also authenticate against the
servers. I see from re-reading what I posted I didn't change all the
occurrences of my account name and domain (not that it matters much). I
could authenticate for sending mail but not receiving it and as the log
shows there was some problem with the password: "Couldn't Get password
9". And I'm sure I'm using the correct account name and password (I use
them for web access and for IMAP access).

I checked the mapi account a number of times - sometimes the box for the
domain name showed up - most of the times it did not. I could not figure
out what the pattern was.

My question was, does the IT department have to specifically allow a
mapi connection or is it on by default? Since I was able to connect by
IMAP, I haven't had time to work with the mapi connection. Has any one
else been able to get the mapi plugin to work?
