Description Norman R. Weathers 2006-11-29 15:16:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/20061107 Fedora/ Firefox/ pango-text

Description of problem:
When I try to connect to my Exchange Calander using kontact (calander function), it can see that the service is there (mailbox) because it uses the correct http form to get that information (much like Evolution Connector does), but when I try to download anything from the calander, it tries to use webdav as the protocol of choice, and our exchange servers do not have this as an option.  Is there no way to use the http protocol instead?

Also, just as a wish list, is there some way in the future to integrate the Evolution Connector functionality into kontact.  I prefer kontacts search, archive, and overall look compared to evolution, but our admins have internally disabled IMAP, so we can no longer get to our exchange using kontact.  Just a wish list there...

Thanks for your help,

Norman Weathers

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose correct mailbox
2. Verify mailbox (uses correct http settings and finds mailbox)
3. Try to download calander events...  Fails due to unsupported webdav (on server side, even though the server asks for authentication)

Actual Results:
I get the following if I try this with konqueror:

An error occurred while loading webdav://hoexmb9.conoco.net/exchange/weathnr:
The file or folder webdav://hoexmb9.conoco.net/exchange/weathnr does not exist.

Expected Results:
If it worked correctly, hopefully I would get my calander events in kontct.
