Preferably natively (Exchange mode), so that my calendar, etc, all sync up properly. It was working fine under our old version of Exchange (2007?), but broke with the upgrade to Exchange 2010. Done the usual remove the account, re-add, etc. Prefer not to drop down to IMAP mode for mail only.
Heres some more information that might be helpful,
As far as I know (and I am battling with the very same issue), this doesn't work. After configuring the connector, and entering the password, a message pops up saying that the server runs version 5.5 of MS Exchange and the connector is not compatible. You don't get any further errors, and you can download the list of folders, but you can't open any of them. This is the state of play as I experience with Evolution 2.22.
I am having a similar issue.
I have two computers at home and installed on both of them Ubuntu 10.04. But in one (laptop) I just upgraded through the Update Manager from 9.10, while on the other (desktop) I did a full reinstall with a CD (and forgot to backup the Evolution data).
Well, the results have been different on both, regarding Evolution. In the laptop, I can still see and download emails from my job's Exchange Server. While on the desktop, Evolution seems to connect and see the server, but nothing is downloaded. I even removed the account a couple of times, to see if I had mis-configured it.
My next step is to backup the Evolution data and setup from the laptop and copy it to the desktop. I will let you know the outcome.
Hopefully, this piece of information might help you.
Just tried it and worked! I backed up my Exchange account from my laptop, and restored it into my desktop Evolution program. Then I pressed "Send/Receive" and new emails where downloaded.
DavMail Gateway 4.5.0 worked smoothly with Evolution 3.4.4 for accessing mail, calendar, and corporate directory on Exchange 2010 SP1 from Debian Wheezy.
It is fairly quick and easy to setup:
Download the Debian package from the developers on the DavMail website, for example v4.5.0:
Install the package
sudo dpkg -i davmail_4.5.0-2292-1_all.deb
Obtain URL of Exchange server (skip if you know it)
The EWS plugin for Evolution can help discover the URL:
sudo apt-get install evolution-ews
Start the 'Add a new account' wizard in Evolution. Fill in name and your Exchange email, choose 'Exchange Web Services' for server type, fill in your username and hit Fetch URL. Cancel the wizard.
davmail.server=true davmail.enableEws=auto # Paste the Exchange server URL discovered in previous step davmail.url=https://subdomain.corporatedomain.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx # Choose ports above 1024 to be able to run as regular user davmail.imapPort=1993 davmail.smtpPort=1465 davmail.ldapPort=1636 davmail.popPort=1995 davmail.caldavPort=8443
davmailin a terminal to see the output in case something goes wrong. For a permanent setup, see here for an init script.
In Evolution add an IMAP+ mail account
Server: localhost Port: 1993 Security: No encryption Auth Type: Password
(It is safe to be unencrypted, this is a localhost connection between client and davmail only).
Add an address book:
General tab: Type: On LDAP Servers Server: localhost Port: 1636 Security: No encryption Login method: Using distinguished name (DN) Login: <your.corporate.windows.domain>\<username> Details tab: Search base: ou=people Search scope: Sub
Add a calendar:
Type: CalDAV URL: caldav://localhost:8443 Username: <your.corporate.windows.domain>\<username> User email: <your exchage email> Browse server for a Calendar -- you should find you calendar there
When my Company mail server upgraded from Microsoft Windows Exchange Server 2003 to Microsoft Windows Exchange Server 2007 my Evolution mail client stopped receiving mail (in Ubuntu).
I got the network administrator to allow access to the server via IMAP. Evolution had no problem connecting via IMAP.
