Description Dax Kelson 2008-12-23 15:38:49 EST
Description of problem:

It appears that Evolution 2.24.0 through at least evolution-2.24.2 fails to authenticate with GSSAPI / Kerberos with IMAP.

It does fetch an imap service ticket, but fails to use it.

This bug was reported in the GNOME bug tracker in Sept 2008 but no action has been taken there (yet).

Evolution 2.22 on Fedora 9 works perfectly fine with GSSAPI / Kerberos IMAP authentication.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure workstation in Kerberos REALM
2. Tell Evo 2.24 to use GSSAPI IMAP authentication

Changing the priority from low to medium. This is a show-stopper for anybody hit by it (myself, for eg).
Comment 2 Milan Crha 2009-01-08 06:02:39 EST
The upstream bug [1] contains a patch, which has been committed to the stable branch too, couple minutes ago. The fix will be available in the next release/update of evolution-data-server, version 2.24.3, which is planned around January 14th.
