Subject: Re: ports/98377: evolution 2.6.2 has stopped working with Exchange
Date: Fri, 29 Dec 2006 09:31:16 +0100
As of evolution-184.108.40.206/evolution-exchange-2.8.2, mail with my Microsoft
Exchange backend is now working again. No specific cause was ever
determined from my side: something serendipitous happened "upstream".
Sometimes Evolution gets wedged after improper shutdown (like a crash)
giving an erroneous "Lost connection to backend Exchange process"
dialog. Assuming you have all your important information in the
Exchange account (i.e. nothing locally), the fix I have found to work is
to rm -rf $USER/.evolution and $USER/apps/evolution.
