Description of problem:
I upgraded from FC3 to FC4. Now when i try to use evolution with Microsoft exchange i get the error that "No mailbox for user $username on $servername". The path for me email when using OWA has my first and last name in the path. But when i go to the evolution settings there seems to be no way to tell it like how there used to be before.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
My settings are as follows.
1. edit -> preferences and selecting my email account.
2. I select Microsoft Exchange as my server type.
3. for Username, i have my username which is "irlapasj"
4. For owa url: i have, "http://ustr-exch5/exchange/samuel.irlapati"
5. Authentication type "Plaintext Password"
Actual Results: After hittong ok, i try to check my email and ir prompts for my password. When I enter my password i get the error "No mailbox for user irlapasj on ustr-exch5.tr.unisys.com."
Expected Results: I would expect to see my email or all the folders on the server.
Here is the string value from .gconf/apps/evolution/%gconf.xml

Looks like it's sending your username rather than mailbox name to the Exchange
server; this is a known bug, unfortunately, and we don't have a fix yet.
I can confirm the bug - having the same problem. My Hosted Exchange environment
uses https://server/mailboxname (in my case jb) as setup, and I get an error
message "no mailbox jb at server" too :\
Just switched from FC3 to FC4 - evolution 2.04 worked under FC3.
When I try to read my folders now, I first get,
Mailbox for odonnell is not on this server.
This is followed with,
Error while Scanning folders in "Exchange server <server>".
Lost connection to Evolution Exchange backend process.
Upgraded to evolution 2.2.3 and evolution-data-server-1.2.3-3, still have the
