Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Could connect to exchange server okay from evolution 2.24.3 (Ubuntu 8.10). After upgrade to evolution 2.26.1 (Ubuntu 9.04) I can no longer authenticate to the server (message is "password incorrect?").

I still have the old distro on a separate partition, but I couldn't get exchange 2.24.3 to work any longer. When I used the old version I got: "Error while generating message list - table personal/inbox has 28 columns but 26 values were supplied." Not sure if these problems are related or not.

Connection to the exchange server by the web still works fine. Connection to a separate imap server works fine.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Thanks in advance.

I am having the same error. I am trying to connect to an exchange 2008 server, with the 2.2.6 connector in ubuntu 9.04, and get an authentication error or one saying the server cannot be found, or an unknown error.

It's working for me now, but in a strange kind of way. When I have the http proxy set then I cannot connect to the exchange server. When I turn the http proxy off, then I can. So at work I have to toggle the proxy on to surf the internet through our firewall, and toggle it back off in order to read email. This happens both with configuring firefox using its preferences menu to no proxy/manual/automatic proxy config url, or when the preference is set to "system proxy settings" and I use gconf to set the http proxy.

hmmm...I 'll try that. I just use my host machine and privoxy as a
proxy occasionally, but it is usually toggled off. I do not think the
exchange server has webdav enabled, it is also exchange 2007.

I have seen a number of reports about ex2007 and evolution, still keep
getting an unknown error preventing me from authenticating. IMAP
functions fine, but I really need the calendar feature.

Thanks

Ian
