SSO as in Single Sign On?  Just use Kerberos.  Evolution supports GSSAPI
(Kerberos) for SMTP, POP, and IMAP, Epiphany supports HTTP Negotiate
(for Kerberos) for web sites (you need to set a setting in about:config
though, which kinda sucks), SSH can use GSSAPI, and gnome-vfs also
supports Negotiate (although you might need to apply the patch I put in
Bugzilla to fix the Neon GSSAPI code to match Neon 0.25's code - ).

Evolution doesn't support GSSAPI authetication for LDAP addressbooks, i filed a bug long ago about this
but i haven't got any answer.
