Description of problem:
If the Exchange server changes to a new machine(new IP) the Calendar
component will not accept the changed IP from the configuration of the
It looks like gconfd is not told about the change because the file
.gconf/apps/evolution/calendar/%gconf.xml still has a reference to the

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an Exchange email account in Evolution
2. Change the IP address of the Exchange server
3. Attempt to view your Calendar
Actual Results: The check box for the Exchange calendar is
unselected. If I attempt to check the box, it immediately resets to
unselected and I can see in the bottom bar that it is trying to
connect to the old IP address of the exchange server
Expected Results: My calendar should be visible
I updated to the latest RAWHIDE to see if the issue was resolved. It
is not resolved in the development tree.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
I no longer have the ability to test this issue.
So, let's go ahead and close it and move on.
