No support for SSL OWA

  • Ermanno Bonifazi

    We have OWA in SSL (, but the authenticate button, during account config do not recognize the URL.

      I'm having a similar problem. Also using OWA with SSL. No matter what URL I enter, it says it can't connect to the server. I've tried,,, and several other URL permutations. Nothing. Any ideas on this one would be great. Thanks.

        Has anyone found a fix for this issue?  I'm trying to get Evolution for Windows to work with a new exchange installation for a client and unable to get it to work with OWA and SSL.

      I want to also register my failure to connect to SSL secured OWA.  The linux version works fine, but the Windows version will not connect on or off network.

      I know there's another thread about this just below this thread.  Hopefully someone will confirm this or offer a solution... as I DO love Evolution to the point of fault. ;)

      I'm away from my home computer right now so I can't try it myself, but has anyone tried specifing the SSL port 443 in the URL?

      I think it may have to do with the gconf.xml file.  I'm not sure as I haven't seen the Linux equivalent yet, but I don't think it's supposed to look like the following code (note the html equivalents, displayed as >, etc).  It doesn't have my OWA yet, as it will not connect to the server.  We use SSL at the school, and it sounds like it is a common issue.  I'd really like to see this work, as we are trying to swap our school system and city over to OpenSource software as much as possible.

      Does anyone know how to use SSL for OWA yet?

      • Alex Earl

        I have a feeling deep in my gut that libsoup is not built with SSL support, which is why OWA over SSL doesn't work. I haven't tried building libsoup WITH SSL support myself yet to test that theory though.

      Has anyone come up with a solution for this?  Not having SSL supported makes it hard to showcase this great app to mgt.

      • Alex Earl

        Alex Earl - 2007-02-16

        I haven't looked into it deeply, but as I have said before, I suspect that libsoup is not built with SSL support.

        • Jason Hershkowitz

          Does anyone have instructions on how to create a new Libsoup for Windows that contains SSL Support? This is working in the Linux version, and should be a relatively easy update.

            I haven't setup a mingw environment yet on windows. I assume you would just need the dependencies and run the ./configure script including SSL support. I'll look into it.

      Have you looked into this yet?? Any progress??

    • Jason Hershkowitz

      Are there any good websites or could you post instructions on how to convert from Linux builds to Windows dll files? I have tried doing this myself in Visual C, but all my dlls are failing miserably ... If there is a good mini tutorial, I would be more than happy to give creating the libsoup w/ SSL a shot.

    • Jason Hershkowitz

      anyone have any info on how to compile Linux files into Windows DLLs? Mine are still not being done properly

      I tried the latest version Evolution-2.8.2-2.msi but still running into the same problem.Can anyone give some pointers as to what could be the issue.

      Anyone hear anything else about this?  I looked, but didn't see a response from markybob on this.

      Any news on SSL support?  Would love to try dumping Outlook for Evolution at work!

        I too am interested in the libsoup with SSL.  Any timeline for getting it out?
