2. setup a new account to connect to exchange server

Comment 1 Thomas Kordelle 2009-06-26 07:45:48 EDT

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
