Default evolution 2.30 with exchange

hi,
I tested evolution 2.30 in sid to access my exchange mailbox, something
that's working painfully in lenny. In sid evolution says that network is
not available. Why?

Do you know if it is working at all? there seem to be many bugs in this
version. Any experience with exchange mails?

regards

Check whether Evolution is working in "off-line" mode.

It's only offline - something's missing

but what should I check if offline works - it's useless offline.

I think I better ask the evolution guys, but there should be somebody here
using it ( I thought)

Mmm, I'n not sure to follow you here.

If Evolution is working "off-line", switch into "on-line" mode, that
should go away the message about "network not available".

this is the problem the online option (down left) is outblended and
inactive. I don't understand why.
By the way I'm using evolution in KDE4 so may be there is something from
gnome missing.

I did a test upgrade so may be evolution packages are upgraded but dependant
were not installed - is it possible?

regards

It could be a bug, but Evolution depends much in network-manager settings
to check the connection status of the computer. Be sure you are indeed
online.

Also, go to "File" menu and look there for any "switch to online" option
you can toggle on.

You can try by launching Evolution being another user (not your usual
one) and from a console, to see any output errors.

Check for any updated packages again.

Update manager should care about the required packages and dependancies
that will be upgraded, I doubt you are missing one of them, it should
have warned you if something was missing or broken :-?

does somebody here is using it (also in production)?
I want to cross check some things.
I'm not using network manager, because the stupid thing is waiting for me to
login to connect, but my home is on a network share that I need to have
mounted before I login

this is a good idea, I'll try. I've actually tried but only to see if evo is
running

thanks - perhaps is the network manager. I'll get it running and check
again.

if someone is reading mails with evolution 2.30 from exchange please give me
a note.

regards

If you 'edit' the network connection using network manager and make the
connection available to all users, then the connection will be
established at system startup and before you log in.

I try Evolution with Exchange from time to time, but always find it
buggy. My most recent experience was with Evolution 2.30 on Ubuntu, and
that was no exception. If IMAP can be enabled on the Exchange server, I
would try that protocol instead, using one of a number of suitable
clients.

how do I make them available to _all_ users?

imap is no option, big company. For me evolution2.22 with exchange is
working (buggy I admit) but working. It crashes now and then, but I can
live with it and I know how to workaround it.

So you could still access exchange in ubuntu with (after enabling) the
network manager?

thanks and regards

Right-click the network manager icon and click on "Edit Connections
...". Choose the relevant connection and click on the "Edit" button. At
the bottom left of the new window, check the "Available to all users"
box.

Yes. Even then, Evolution would freeze or crash several times per day.
