Bug Description

This has been mentioned both on the Ximian and Debian bug trackers, but I can't
see it here, so I thought I'd mention it.

When using the Exchange connector, in Evolution, Outlook Web Access logins that
require a "domain/username", rather than just "username", won't authenticate.
From what I've read, this is because the connector doesn't pass the "domain"
section over. AFAIK patches have been created.

eh, nice. That would explain why my evo works fine. Will try to get
this in today.

Tks,

A note to add here: there are two patches attached to the bug report,
plus a link (in the URL field) to the change that was actually committed
to CVS.

The first, one-liner patch works fine.

The second, longer patch attached to the bug by Sarfraaz Ahmed is not
correct.

The fix actually committed to CVS _IS_ correct.

This bug report was supposed to closed with a previous upload but wasn't
due to a typo. Closing it now.

Yes, sorry I should have said in my original report. It's in Warty (Evolution
2.0.2 is the version number given on the About Evolution dialogue).
