Comment 60 for bug 25106

I did have the same issue (Gutsy, Evo 2.12.1, ) as some of the people here, where i could do everything except access the GAL. I managed to get things working using the following settings;

In Account Editor -> Receiving Mail
 - Username = domain\username
 - OWA =

In Account Editor -> Receving Options
 - Global Catalog Server Name =

You should then be able to get into GAL (must search to show names).

Hope this helps some.
