Description (last modified by felixmoeller) (diff)

I've tried to sync a Sony Ericson K800i with Evolution. It works fine with the local calendar but when I try to sync with MS exchange it fails. evo2_calendar_open: Failed to open calendar: Authentication required My config looks as follows:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config>
  <address_path/>
  <calendar_path>exchange://kornale@myserver.com/;personal/Calendar</calendar_path>
  <tasks_path/>
</config>

I'm suffering from the same issue. I'll try to debug it at some point and get a bit deeper down.

I'm no expert on this, but by looking at the ECal API documentation I think that evo2sync should provide Evolution an authentication function by calling e_cal_set_auth_func before calling e_cal_open.

I could try to take a stab at this, but I have reservations about storing sensitive information like the domain password in an unecrypted configuration file. Does OpenSync? (plan to) support some sort of safe storage for sensitive data?
