Today we downloaded the RC-candidate of UBU 10.10 and while trying to
configure Evolution against our Micro$oft Exchange server we get ( in
ubuntu ) the following message:

The Exchange Server is not compatible with Exchange Connector.

The server is running Exchange 5.5. Exchange Connector supports
Micro$oft Exchange 200 and 2003 only.

Thanks for your attention.
