Thread: Email with MS Exchange in Suse 11.0?

  1. #1

    Default Email with MS Exchange in Suse 11.0?

    My workplace has standardized on MS Exchange, which means I have to use it for my email. Evolution keeps crashing - this seems to be a common occurence for many people - but I've yet to see a solution. It is basically unusable, at least for MS Exchange. And MS Webmail provides only a very bare-bones interface under firefox.

    Are there any other solutions which will allow me to read and send mail using an MS Exchange server?

    Thanks,
    -A.

    I'm not sure how this'll work for you but it has worked for problems with hotmail.
    Go into the Fx addressbar type in about:config
    In the filter bar type useragent
    then look for this line"general.useragent.vendor" under value where it says SUSE change it to Firefox.
    Hope it works for you.

    This is what I was using up until late September - OpenChange - Evolution Plugin

    I connect to an Exchange2007 server, so the Evolution exchange connector was useless for me. This MAPI Provider is exactly what I was looking for. It gives Evo a native connection to the exchange server instead of an OWA link.
    Unfortunately, the precompiled binaries have been pulled while some licensing is sorted out. I think the source is available for those who are comfortable building the install files. MAPIProvider - Evolution

    If you manage to compile it and get it running, please share the info here.

    I got problems after switching to Evolution 2.22 (after 2.6), we use Exchange at work too... After disabling the addressbook I got it too work, all seems ok until I reply on an email. CPU shoots to permanent 100% and it eats memory at a rate of about 100MB per hour (doesn't crash for me though). Do you experience a similar problem?

    Solved it in the meantime by setting up KMail, by using IMAP, although by the cost some calender functionality.

    I didn't try firefox, but I was very pleasantly surprised to find that Konqueror supported mail via OWA very nicely. I wouldn't call it barebones, it was comparable to using it via IE.

    Still, not as nice as a local client, but better than nothing...

    Cheers,

    Thumbs up Re: Email with MS Exchange in Suse 11.0?

    Just noticed this on the MAPI-Provider page:
    License changes are complete. The builds will resume shortly.
    Looking forward to seeing what progress they made in the past 2 months.

    Yes, only managed to connect to exchange with Evolution would rather use Thunderbird as Evolution adds so much Gnome stuff
