Description Gregor Hlawacek 2013-08-21 04:34:27 EDT
Description of problem:

I can not create an appointment in my exchange calendar. Works for the Personal and my google calendar

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create an appointment in the EWS connected exchange calendar

Actual results:

Cannot create calendar object: The request failed schema validation: The 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/services/2006/types:EmailAddress' element is invalid - The value '' is invalid according to its datatype 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/services/2006/types:NonEmptyStringType' - The actual length is less than the MinLength value.

Expected results:

 New appointment

Additional info:

I tried to run evolution with EWS_DEBUG=1 but the error doesn't show up. Seems (as the message indicates) to happen earlier already. I can edit appointments once they are created some where else. If you try to move an appointment from an other calendar into the EWS calendar it silently fails.
