Evolution proxy

A recent upgrade from Ubuntu Intrepid to Jaunty caused Evolution Outlook Web Access (OWA) to stop working. The fix was simple enough, inside Evolution, tell it to have a “Direct connection to the Internet” rather than going through a proxy. Problem solved 🙂

I wonder if anyone has native Exchange support working yet, thanks to Samba and Openchange?

  • It does work. Promise.

    Although not using ncacn_http (aka “Outlook Anywhere” or RPC over HTTP).

  • Hi Chris,
    I tried using the evolution-mapi plug-in and it crashed every time I tried connecting to the Exchange box while setting up the account.

  • So I keep hearing 😉
    I did look into it for a short while, but then got side tracked. AFAIK I think I have to build samba4, openchange, evolution-data-backend-thingy and evolution itself. I’ll see if I can get it working at some point and blog it.


  • Hmm.. I see. I did look for a mapi package in Ubuntu before Jaunty was release, but didn’t think I found anything. I can see that it’s there now. Funny, the summary says “Evolution extension for MS Exchange 2007 servers”. Then goes on to say “also Exchange 2003, 2000 and 5.5.” Couldn’t they just say “Evolution extension for MS Exchange servers”?? 🙂

    I’ll have a play next week.
