# Setup Evolution plugin for MS Exchange on Fedora 11

Can anyone please guide me (or point to a nice guide) on how to set up the Evolution plugin for MS Exchange on Fedora 11? I tried installing from source, but got pretty much lost in woods. It would be great to have as simple guide (like yum install something) - if it is possible. If I have to deal with sources, I would appreciate a very detailed step-by-step guide for dummy.

Thanks!

Talking to Exchange 2003 is very different than talking to Exchange 2007, please tell us which you're wanting to connect to. Also, there are two Evolution plugins for Exchange: The Exchange Plugin, and the Exchange MAPI plugin. –  sysadmin1138 Jul 25 '09 at 16:29
It would be Exchange 2007. I don't really know th edifference between the two plugins you've mentioned. –  kdl Jul 26 '09 at 17:57

You have to install the Exchange plugin for Evolution:

pkcon install evolution-exchange


After this you can choose Microsoft Exchange as server type when creating a new Evolution mail account. You have to enter your username (maybe in form <domain>\<user>) and the URL to the Outlook Web Access (OWA URL). After a click on Authenticate you should be asked for your password. If you entered all information correctly, the name of your mailbox should have been filled in in the Mailbox field.

Thanks, it did the trick. –  kdl Jul 27 '09 at 6:08

I don't have Fedora handy to test, but IIRC it is actually installed by default (or it was in earlier versions of Fedora). If it is not installed, it should just be a matter of typing

yum install evolution

yum install evolution-exchange from root
