Re: Evolution with exchange

Matt & others,
I'm now back at my Fedora machine (at work) and I can't even try your suggestion.

As soon as I set the conduits to the relevant Exchange calendar / addressbook / todos and then click on OK, when I open up the same conduit settings immediately afterwards the setting for which of the Evolution calendar/addressbook/todos to sync has gone blank. It just does not seem to want to accept the exchange settings.

I've tried changing the "make available offline" setting for each of these, and it makes no difference.

I'm totally at a loss as to what to do here. It's very annoying. (Am trying to ditch windows, but if I can't sync my PDA with my work calendar and contacts, I'm going to be very much stuck with it.)

Cheers for any advice.

Many thanks, Matt. I'll give this a try.
There aren't 2 PDA objects configured. But I'll try the one time action of copying the data to PDA. Hadn't thought of that.

I have never used Evolution with Exchange, but I'm surprised by the
symptoms you describe.  Any chance you have two "PDA" objects
configured, and you changed the conduit settings on the wrong one?

If that's not the case, it sounds like a bug in the conduit.  It might
be worth trying a "one time" action of "copy to PDA" to see if that
works (assuming you don't mind wiping the calendar/addressbook data on
your PDA.
