One of main reasons for upgrade  F11 to F12 was to hope to connect
evolution 2.28 to Exchange 2007. After a smooth upgrade to F12. I
tried to connect evolution 2.28 with evo-mapi to M$ exchange server.
no luck at all, it crashed every time. The insttiute's exchange 
does not open imap port.   i you have sucessful connection, please
share with me

I have a successful connection, but my compagny is using Exchange 2003
; and the evolution-exchange RPM of Mandriva 2010 says "Currently,
only Exchange 2000 and 2003 are supported". So, it seems that Exchange
2007 is not supported at all ; I think you have to stay with
VirtualBox, or use the bloody Outlook Web Access in Firefox.

I have a successful connection with Exchange 2007. Evo-mapi crashes
immediately in release 2.28.0, you need 2.28.1 where the fixes are. I'm
not familiar with F12 or indeed anything about Fedora, but you may need
to talk to the maintainer of gnome/evolution/evo-mapi for your distro.

You are lucky.  I have 2.28.1, but evolution crashes as soon as I try to 
authenticate.  Thunderbird works fine with DAVMail, but Lightning as the 
calendar provider is quite flaky.  Evolution's caldav won't connect to 
davmail at all.  Nothing seems to connect to the GAL.

So, I run Tbird/DavMail for mail and installed a stripped down version 
of XP in virtual box, stripped it down some more, installed Outlook, set 
the registry so that shell=outlook.exe, and am using it as a 
calendar/addressbook appliance.  I am patiently hoping that 
evolution-mapi will work as well as evolution-exchange some day and I 
can go back to using a native Linux solution.

Evolution was the reason I ran gnome on my work machine.
