I remember using Evolution to connect to an exchange server a long time ago. Since then, I installed Evolution along with the exchange server plugin and am trying to get it setup to no avail.

I have the OWA URL and can login there just fine; however, I cannot appear to authenticate with it in Evolution.

Any ideas as to what I might be missing? My email address and username do not match up, but I didn't believe that to be an issue. I entered the username I use to login via OWA as well as my email address.

What version of Exchange are you trying to connect to now? Can the system admin provide any assistance? Event log errors, etc. – Dave M Mar 28 '11 at 15:17
I think it is 2007, eh, it isn't supported, so I am on my own here. – Walter White Mar 28 '11 at 16:09

This is what I used, I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 connecting to Exchange 2003.

Outlook 2007 is not supported.

I got the OWA url from the dialog box that requests your password when you first sign-in to MS Outlook Web Access via your browser. And like slhck said, use the whole address, from the protocol ("http:" or "https:") to the port if it's provided (":80" in my case).
