I am assuming you mean that you checked your exchange UID/PWD.  Or did
you change your Linux user?
If I assume correctly, did you try just changing your exchange pwd in

Sometimes a screwdriver is better than a sledgehammer.

No I mean my system (Linux) UID and GID. The reason was completely
unrelated to exchange. I chown -R my entire home dir and wiped temp
which fixed most Gnome stuff that got mad at me, but Evolution is still
screwed.  From the error message it seems to me there is a process
that sits in the background and talks to the exchange server, but for some
reason now it won't talk to my instance of Evolution.
