The path for me email when using OWA has my first and last name in the path. But when i go to the evolution settings there seems to be no way to tell it like how there used to be before.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
My settings are as follows.

4. For owa url: i have, "http://ustr-exch5/exchange/samuel.irlapati"
5. Authentication type "Plaintext Password"


Actual Results:  After hittong ok, i try to check my email and ir prompts for my password. When I enter my password i get the error "No mailbox for user irlapasj on"

Looks like it's sending your username rather than mailbox name to the Exchange
server; this is a known bug, unfortunately, and we don't have a fix yet.

Comment 2 Joerg Battermann 2005-07-14 11:25:05 UTC
I can confirm the bug - having the same problem. My Hosted Exchange environment 
uses https://server/mailboxname (in my case jb) as setup, and I get an error 
message "no mailbox jb at server" too :\

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

The distribution against which this bug was reported is no longer supported,
could you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently
supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue
turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report.  If
after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this
