Re: [Evolution] Authentication Issues with Exchange Web Services

Hi Robert,

Thanks for the quick response.  That seemed to solve one issue but I think I have some more.  For some background:

I am trying to connect to my company's Exchange server using.  I can connect fine to Outlook Web Access by going to and entering DOMAIN\username and my Password.  Similarly, I can use the native Mail app on the Mac with no issues to read and send mail.

Based on this, what values should I be entering for my username (e.g. "DOMAIN\username" or just "username") and the URL fields (e.g. just accept what is returned via the "FETCH URL" button or use the URL used to access OWA)?

IIRC both use password identification over HTTP, it's only the low-level details that differ.

I suggest starting with basic and trying NTLM if basic does not work.
