RHEL 5.2 will re-base Evolution from version 2.8.0 to version 2.12.3.
Can you please test whether this bug is still present in RHEL 5.2?
Comment 2 Ryan Daly 2008-03-17 13:38:54 EDT
This seems to work a bit better.  However, there are still issues with this.

I have two accounts registered in Evolution.  In my company, when I use one
account, it sends out one way, and the other account (Exchange account) uses the
Exchange server.  It seems that when I schedule meetings, Evolution wants to
send out using the non-Exchange account.  Therefore, some of my meeting notices
come back as undeliverable.
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2008-03-17 13:49:04 EDT
Okay, thanks for responding.
Comment 4 Milan Crha 2008-06-10 06:08:00 EDT
Can you check in Edit->Preferences->Mail Accounts, whether your Exchange account
is set as default account or not? I think Evolution uses your default account to
send meeting notifications.

Did I get it right that the due date for tasks is now working properly?
Comment 5 Ryan Daly 2008-06-10 09:16:27 EDT
I can't speak for the due date for tasks...

As far as calendar events - I just responded to one after marking my Exchange
account the default.  The response must have been confused because when I check
on my Outlook client, I see that the meeting has been Tentatively accepted, yet
Evolution is telling me that it was sent as accepted.
Comment 6 Ryan Daly 2008-06-10 09:29:09 EDT
As for the tasks...  I just tried creating one and twice now specified I wanted
it in my Exchange tasks; however, they're showing up in my Personal tasks.  That
doesn't appear to work any longer.
Comment 8 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-07-21 19:11:46 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
Comment 10 Milan Crha 2008-08-29 11:19:51 EDT
I'm a bit curious about this report. What is the issue? It can be two things:
a) due dates for tasks on exchange (can touch evolution-connector package)
b) what account use as organizer - not a bug, just setup evo properly.

Is there any other "issue" I do not see?
Comment 12 Matěj Cepl 2009-05-28 12:29:44 EDT
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? Thank you.
Comment 14 Ryan Daly 2009-07-21 13:44:14 EDT
Unfortunately our organization is now using Exchange 2007.  The currently released version of Evolution cannot connect to this version, so I do not have any way to test this at this point.
Comment 15 RHEL Product and Program Management 2014-03-07 08:56:50 EST
This bug/component is not included in scope for RHEL-5.11.0 which is the last RHEL5 minor release. This Bugzilla will soon be CLOSED as WONTFIX (at the end of RHEL5.11 development phase (Apr 22, 2014)). Please contact your account manager or support representative in case you need to escalate this bug.
Comment 16 RHEL Product and Program Management 2014-06-02 09:23:53 EDT
