Evolution crases in Ubuntu when trying to access Exchange 2007 server

I am using the latest netbook version of Ubuntu and I am trying to setup evolution to access Exchange 2007. I installed exchange-mapi and when I click authenticate Evolution crashes and closes out. I have tried every single combo of server names and user names that I can find. I am using the GoDaddy hosted exchange. Any help would be appreciated. Is Evolution the best option or is there another client that is better?

Great and not so great. I'm glad I'm not the only one but too bad it won't work just yet.

Yes, this is correct, is is a problem with the mapi plugin. If you can use the ip address instead of the FQDN then I've noticed it doesn't crash.

Otherwise you may have to use IMAP with it (assuming your network admin has allowed IMAP access)
