Evolution tasks are incompatible to Outlook tasks

Bug Description

I am working with both Evolution and MS-Outlook (unfortunatelly I need to continue doing this until I can handle all MS-Documents without problems with Ubuntu). Therefore I noticed the following incompatiblity between tasks stored by Outlook in the exchange server and tasks stored by Evolution in the exchange server:

Outlook does not differentiate between tasks with "normal" and "(none)" priorty. Both concepts are handled as tasks with "normal" priority. Unfortunatelly Outlook stores tasks with "normal" priority without any priority label (as "(none)" priority task). This results in all these tasks without a priority label are shown in Evolution as "(none)" tasks. This is a minior bug but it is really nasty because it puzzles the ordering of tasks: high, normal, low, (none). Causing all "normal" tasks stored by Outlook to be shown in the last position in Evolution instead of in between of "high" and "low" (when ordering is activated).

In the opposite direction these problem seems not to occur.

Can anybody do me the favour and add somewhere in the many lines of Evolution-Code a proper line which makes Evolution handling tasks without a priority label as "normal" priorised tasks?

Thank you and best regards,
Dominik Kuropka
