Re: [Evolution] getting evolution working with MS Exchange

During configuration you have to choose the type of Server, if you chose
exchange that means you're running evolution-exchange. Please note
evolution-mapi in 9.04 does not work unless you also install samba4 and
libmapi (I haven't logged in to my 9.04 for a while, I think those were
the package names. Dependency issue with the packagers).

If you're using Exchange 2003 then I recommend the evolution-exchange
plugin. It uses the OWA (Outlook Web Access) scraper, so your exchange
server should have a web access URL which you feed to it.

Are you using evolution-exchange or evolution-mapi? The
evolution-exchange plugin only works with Exchange 2003 servers,
evolution-mapi works with Exchange 2007 (the latest). First you'd
to determine which version your company is running.

I've read a bunch (read, a lot) of documentation but can not get
Evolution to connect to the Exchange server at the office. I keep
getting an error message saying something about Exchange not
supporting some feature.

Can you make some suggestions as to what questions I need to ask
Exchange admins to see if I can work through this? I am very
but don't have much experience with Exchange.

BTW, I work at Comcast, so if someone has resolved this issue or
not able to, please do let me know.

Thank you in advance for your help.
