Re: [Evolution] Evolution Mail and Office365 MFA

I am certainly no expert but I did manage to get O365 working. To get
the tenant ID, I followed the instructions here:

So, go to:
    replacing yourcompany with company's domain name IE:

and look for "authorization_endpoint":https://.....etc.
IE: "authorization_endpoint":

which tells us that the tenant id is: b9239bdf-2e69-43c0-b8a3-

Then, for the Application ID, I found:
The application ID refers to the application conecting to exchange. IE:
the ID specifically for GNOME Evolution EWS.

GNOME Evolution EWS: 751cf8be-ca07-484b-9308-fac4b9d85eff 
GNOME Evoluation: 20460e5d-ce91-49af-a3a5-70b6be7486d1

That worked for me.

Evolution works fine with Office365 & MFA.  There's even a Wiki
about it.

although this goes into a lot of detail, my experience is that it
works if you configure Evolution to use Office365
OAuth2.  However,
this may be dependent on which version of Evolution you use, so
if you
need help you must include that information.

Cool, thanks!Will take a closer look.

So, the dreaded day has come, and the IT-dept has enforced MFA for
mail accounts.
Evolution Mail stopped working, more or less as expected.

The guide with tenant and app IDs is unfortunately unusable for me,
the admins won't supply me with the needed IDs.

For all intents and purposes, currently Evolution is dead for me.
I've spent this morning with setting up Thunderbird and paid for the
addon. IT lets me download the mail.
The calendar works so-so with Lightning and tbsync; I can see my own
personal calendar but not the shared ones I also need. I can possibly
tweak this with Davmail, but it's pretty hazy right now.
