Evolution MAPI Provider : Status Update.

with 7 comments

OpenChange has released libmapi 0.7. So now Evolution MAPI provider [1] development will be increasing in pace :). libmapi PHASER 0.7 is pinned on Samba4 GIT 41309dc  (pre alpha 3). This will be the base for the provider code. New builds [2] are available in openSUSE Builds Service.



** I Need help with debian builds in openSUSE build service. Please ping me if u can help 🙂 TIA  **

  4. Hi!

    Any updates on this. I am desperate to get this working on my ubuntu 8.04 hardy with evolution 2.22.1.

    I have tried to compile it from the source but I cannot get it to work…

    I will soon do anything to get a compiled version that works.

    Please, any one that can help?

  6. I’m trying to build the mapi programs for evolution-2.23.[45]. I’ve gotten (with some hacking) samba4, samba4-libs, and libmapi-0.7 to build and install. However, evolution-mapi-provider dies in configure, complaining that doesn’t exist (it doesn’t). I’m using the tarball that was in the evolution-mapi-provider-20080718.0-2.1.src.rpm.

    Also, I had to fiddle with the configure script for libmapi–at some point it sets PKG_CONFIG_PATH as:


    and never sets it back properly.

    I suspect you want:


    P.S., can you mail me
