Push Email for GNOME Evolution’s Exchange MAPI provider (exchange 2007)

with 13 comments


After few days of crazy bug hunting (and creating the same) , we have a nice push event notification framework for Evolution-MAPI. When Evolution is running all the changes happening in user’s mailbox in server would immediately be synced. This avoids those long fetches from server.  A short screen cast (watch in HD) :
Currently I’ve got “new mail” event handled and is limited to mailer. Would be working on other events. This feature has some major issues to be solved before it can land in master.
It is FUN !

  10. Glad to see Linux developers are still churnung out great products to bridge the gab between microsoft’s stronghold. Perhaps one day we will have an equal system giving users that extra choice,
