Re: [Evolution] must run as root to see my account?

One of the "secrets" to using evolution with Ubuntu 16.04 is installing the program from synaptic instead of the command line.  If one starts PC and logs on with one's username and password, one can call up synaptic from the launcher bar (may need to install synaptic first from the Software Center"  Synaptic will ask for the password associated with the username.  Use the search tool (magnifying glass on icon bar) and enter the term (without quotes) "evolution".  Synaptic will report the evolution and other programs that go with it.  Generally clicking on evolution and ticking the check box to mark the program for installation and clicking on "Apply" in the icon bar will install evolution and related programs that most people use.  This does not include evolution-ews, which can also be installed from synaptic once evolution is installed.  After doing the installs, one should be able to call up evolution from the launcher bar (may have to use the search icon at the top of the launcher bar to bring up the icon for evolution.  When evolution loads you should be able to enter your username and proceed with setting up evolution.

Hi, I'd guess that you installed the evolution-ews, but did not restart the evolution-data-server background processes, thus they did not load the evo-ews modules and thus they are not capable of it. The one which is responsible for the accounts is the evolution-source-registry process. You can simply restart whole machine and everything will work as expected (that way you'll make sure that the other processes will run too, in the correct order). The 3.20.x (or maybe 3.22.x, I do not recall precisely) is able to load new modules on the fly.
