Ok, so this might not be the right place to ask, and I apologize if
that's the case. My organization doesn't have an OWA server, but they
have ActiveSync enabled. I am trying to use Evolution instead of
Outlook, and it doesn't seem like it would be difficult to be pulling
from an ActiveSync server into Evolution instead of OWA, but I can't
seem to find any details about such a thing.
This is not entirely off-topic for this list. ActiveSync is conceptually
similar to SyncML, which SyncEvolution uses. For synchronization with
Exchange it would be nice to have ActiveSync support.
But there is no open source implementation of client-side ActiveSync
that could be used in SyncEvolution or Evolution that could be used.
There is z-push, but that only covers the server side.
Therefore it is perhaps not difficult to support Exchange, but it
certainly is a fair amount of work that hasn't been done yet. I also
suspect that you want to use it for email sync; this is something not
currently done in SyncEvolution at all, because typically IMAP works
I use Evolution with Exchange via IMAP just fine, for example, some
oddities in the server implementation notwithstanding.
