It's been too long and I can't remember all of the details. I seem to
remember the your "password" issue among others, such as, mail not being
seen by evolution when it was there thru the OWA. We also had problems
with evolution crashing when switching between mail and calendars. All
of these problems were logged into the novell/gnome bugzilla for
evolution, but never seemed to be resolved.
I am a government contractor and fortunately there is a large installed
base of UNIX and Mac machines that don't do exchange natively. Those
pushed IMAPS, POP. and LDAP (address book). Other than calendaring, it
works pretty well, sometimes better than my colleagues' Outlook
clients. I hear a lot of "mouse rattling" and grumbling at the start of
each day while they wait for their initial connections to the exchange
server. Like right now :-)
In any respect, evolution had some nice features, but for me, they were
out weighted by the bugs.
