Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 511324
exchange calendars cannot be deleted
Last modified: 2013-10-06 21:34:52 EDT
Description of problem:
If you subscribe to a calendar shared by someone else in Exchange, Evolution shows both Delete and Unsubscribe in the right-click context menu on the calendar. If you choose Delete, Evolution warns that the calendar will be deleted permanently, but if you then click okay, it doesn't do anything: the calendar is still in the list. Unsubscribing, however, works fine: it removes the calendar from the list.
In fact, Evolution occasionally pops up a Bug Buddy when I attempt to delete the subscribed-to calendar.
If Evolution cannot delete the calendar, the Delete option should be removed or grayed out from the menu.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create two users on the Exchange server (Exchange 2003 in my testing)
2. Login with Outlook as the first user and create a new calendar.
3. Modify the Sharing Permissions on the new calendar so that it is Folder
Visible to everyone, and make the second user an Editor
4. Login as the second user with Evolution
5. File -> Subscribe to Other User's Calendar and enter the information for
the first user's calendar
6. Right click on the newly subscribed-to calendar and choose Delete
Evolution either does nothing (best case), or it crashes (worst case)
Delete is removed or grayed out from the menu
