Bug Description

Adding an Exchange account no longer works.

To reproduce

1: Click Add in the Mail Accounts tab in the Preferences window
2: Enter name and email address (mine being <email address hidden>)
3: Forward
4: Select Microsoft Exchange
5: Username is prefilled with jens.madsen (from my email address). This isn't
correct in my case, since my Exchange login is catalog\jbma. Fix this.
6: Enter URL for OWA: https://webmail.stibo.com
7: Click Authenticate
8: The dialog which prompts for password says this: "Enter password for
jens.madsen" which is wrong. No matter what I do it always prompts for the
username it took from my mail address. Naturally I can not authenticate with
that username.

If I try to work around this by supplying catalog\<email address hidden> as my mail
address, it prompts me correctly with "Enter password for catalog\jbma". After
entering the password, evolution crashes.

I have a very similar problem in Evolution 2.1.4, but with a wrong dialog in the
druid (text box for entering the server host is not present). Screenshot attached.

Bad dialog screenshot

Remy Maucherat (remy-maucherat) wrote :

The cause for my bad dialog was that the Exchange plugin was not enabled.
Obviously, this is not very user friendly.
Unfortunately, as my username on the Exchange server is my full email address, I
am now experiencing this bug as described (but without any possible workaround
as the domain is always stripped from the address).

This is partially fixed in 2.1.5. When using the workaround for the username, it
no longer crashes. It's now possible to create an account.
