By default Ubuntu does not install the EWS (Exchange Web Service) plugin for Evolution
sudo apt-get install evolution-ews
Then go into Evolution and choose the following settings:
- Server Type: Exchange Web Service
- Username: WINDOWS-DOMAIN\username
- Host URL: https://webmail.company.com/owa/
Now click “Fetch URL” and it should ask you for a password and populate the Host and OAB Url correctly.
It will then try and launch Evolution but for me I had to restart for it to correctly work and then it asked me a couple of times for my windows password.
