Errormessage after pressing button Authenticate
After upgrade from Fedora 10 to 11 evolution does not connect to exchange server.
e-data-server-ui-Message: Unable to find password(s) in keyring (Keyring reports: No matching results)
e-data-server-ui-Message: Key file does not have group 'Passwords-Exchange'
(evolution:19178): e-utils-WARNING **: No parent set, or default parent available for error dialog
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cleanup folder .evolution and .gconf/apps/evolution
2. setup a new account to connect to exchange server
3. on step 4, when authentication is checked, only an errormessage apears
Evolution-Exchange plugin is unusable within Fedora 11.
Screenshot of errormessage attached.
after a little bit of debugging i've found the problem. With in the gnome-settings a proxy (with authorization) was configured. This proxy is silently used by the exchange-plugin while doing the HTTP Authentication with the exchange server. The proxy returned a httpcode 407 which is silently eaten by the plugin (e2k-autoconfig.c:425). An unsusable errormessage is show instead the real problem and errorcode.
This handling must be changed to give the user a change to get the plugin working in any case of http or exchange-server errors.
With best regards
Moving this upstream for better visibility.
