Description Casey Peel 2012-06-08 16:23:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Evolution silently fails to send email through an Exchange server. By all
appearances it sends, but no recipient receives an email.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qa | grep evolution
MS Exchange 2003

How reproducible:
100%, sadly.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure Evolution to an Exchange 2003 server
2. Compose email
3. Click send

Actual results:
Email appears sent successfully (email composition window closes, mail appears
in Sent Items folder).

If Evolution is started thusly:
$ E2K_DEBUG=5 evolution

The following messages appear when the email is sent:
(evolution:26229): camel-exchange-provider-CRITICAL **: camel_exchange_utils_send_message: assertion `ed != NULL' failed

(evolution:26229): camel-WARNING **: CamelExchangeTransport::send_to_sync() reported failure without setting its GError

Expected results:
The email actually gets sent.

Additional info:
Given the silent nature of the failure, I recommend it get considered for
higher severity. Took me a week before I discovered that *none* of the emails
that I sent actually were delivered. Receiving emails works fine.

Confirmed there is no problem sending email from this account using a real
Outlook client.

No problems with this with the version of Evolution that came with F14.
