Re: [Evolution] LDAP

Hi Milan,

The search finds nothing. the debug log just shows:

e_book_backend_ldap_search ... 
e_book_backend_ldap_search ... 
e_book_backend_ldap_search ... 
e_book_backend_ldap_search ... 

The auto complete doesn't find anything from that ldap server. It only find contacts from the EWS account that is also part of evolution. I have 3 accounts on evolution. 1 EWS account and 2 accounts on zimbra. The zimbra ldap is not showing any contacts in evolution, but works in Thunderbird. I do not want to use that.

What does this mean?

it shows that evolution successfully connected to your server and it
had been able to talk to it.

It seems to me it tried to generate local cache too early, when not
connected to the server yet. It will retry again on refresh or some

If the search works, you can see also the content what the server
returned, aka the found contacts. Does it claim any error? You can also
see the query itself. I would not use the "Any field contains", rather
use "Name contains" or "Email begins with", which are similar (but not
the same) as searching for the contact in the New Mail Message composer
(or search in the composer, if you've the book enable for the
