Re: [Evolution] Authentication Issues with Exchange Web Services



Your suggestion did the trick!  Thank you very much.


(With respect to Patrick’s question, which I just saw, I am using Evolution 3.10.4.) 


I also just saw a continuation of this thread about compiling to a newer version – I have not read through all of the replies yet but perhaps I should.  I did try to compile from source but every time I ran ./configure, it seemed liked I was missing many dependencies.  If there were suggestions for selecting another distribution that keeps Evolution more up to date, I will also look into those.


Thanks again.

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)?


I always use DOMAIN\username, just give it a try. Also just accept what autoconfig has given you, if it does not work, then try something like:  ""  but we cant' be sure that it would work, so if both autoconfig and this url does not work, you need to ask your admin which protocols are enabled on the server (you need EWS) and what is the EWS URL.


Note that Xubuntu 14.04 Evolution packages are pretty old, even ancient (3.10 if I understand right). Even Vivid 15.04 has very old packages. So I compile my own from time to time. Alternatively, if you upgrade to Vivid 15.04, you can use Fabien Tassin PPA here:  and use 3.16.x which is relatively recent.
