Hello community,

I need to connect to a MS Exchange Server 2007 (including public folder support) over MAPI. Until recently I used davmail + thunderbird for this. However, a few weeks ago I decided to give evolution + evolution mapi a second try. I installed it from OBS which went perfectly and I was/am impressed. It is exactly what I need, much faster than davmail and much more stable than when I tried it last time.

However, I would like to update eventually to 12.3 on my laptop too. Has anybody succeeded compiling evolution MAPI on 12.3 (running KDE)? Would I need to compile the whole evolution package? Is there a way to create an rpm package (for somebody with no knowledge of rpm packaging) and then install this package?

Thank you!
