Description Jonathan Kamens 2007-10-07 13:38:00 EDT
For some reason, my OWA server doesn't export the Global Address List at the
/gal URL.  It accepts a post to that URL but rejects the username / password
that is entered.

When I click on "Global Address List" in the addressbook window, it prompts me
for a password.  I enter it.  It prompts me again.  I enter it.  It prompts me
again.  Etc.  Clicking "Cancel" does no good; it prompts me again.  Etc.

In fact, there is no way that I can tell to get out of this vicious circle
expect to force shutdown evolution and then edit
.gconf/evolution/addressbook/display/%gconf.xml to remove the primary address
book setting, so that it won't be selected the next time evolution is started.

This infinite authentication loop needs to be fixed.  Independent of that, it
should be possible to remove the GAL from the UI completely if the Exchange
server being used doesn't export it.

Independent of *that*, if my Outlook client at work can get to the GAL, then
Exchange should be able to as well, but I have no idea how to make that work
(i.e., I have no idea what Evolution is doing differently from Outlook, since
that Outlook is able to access the GAL but Exchange isn't).

I have evolution-exchange-2.12.0-1.fc8 and evolution-2.12.0-3.fc8.
