How to connect ubuntu 11.04 evolution with Exchange 5.5?

Hi,

With great enthusiasm I installed the latest distro of Ubuntu - codename "Nutty Narwall", or 11.04 to some of us.

I am trying to connect to our Exchange Server, and searched the net for "How to"s, with no luck.

There seems to be a plugin - Evolution-Exchange which stated it's only compatible with 2003 and 2007, not Exchange 5.5

Please could someone help, or provide instructions as How to connect Ubuntu Evolution to Exchange 5.5 (as an end-user, I do not have access to server-side) please?

Would be much appreciated.

Thank You.

Kind Regards,

Mo

sreedhar2u,

Previously when configuring our business emails, we have been told to leave the "Domain" field blank.

Followed the instructions provided and guess the domain to be @companyname.com, but then "Authentication failed"

So, that didn't work.

What could I be doing wrong?

Thanks for supporting.

Choose the Server Type: Exchange MAPI

Configuration

Domain name: just use domain name without .com

and also check the Server name is correct or not.

you can use a tool davmail downloaded from sourgceforge, it will connect to exchange on MAPI, and then you can configure your mail client to connect to that tool on localhost.
