    "evolution-exchange-storage.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience."

    it happens soon after Evolution start.

    I do not use Exchange, I use IMAP.

    v2.26.2, Win XP SP2

    Is there an option to disable Exchange functionality so not run unneeded process on my PC?
    To my mind it should not start if I did not configure Exchange account.

    The crash gives bad initial impression of otherwise very powerful product.
    Thanks for your work on Windows port.

    got same issue on WinXP SP3 with MS Outlook running and MSExchange server connection. no Exchange account was configured for Evolution though. are there any workarounds to go from that?

    Same problem here, after 2 minutes evolution-exchange-storage.exe crashes and until I reload evolution, I have no access to my exchange messages.
    Is there any workaround? I like evolution much better than outlook and I'd like to stick with it. pleeeeeeease!

    Try under preferences. It will show which modules are loaded. Uncheck "Exchange storage" and then restart Evolution. As far as I know Evolution for Windows does not work with exchange. My advice is to use Evolution un Linux (Unbuntu especially!!!) if you really need it to work with exchange.

    Well, actually I'd like to use evolution to access the exchange server of my office, so I can't switch it off.
    Anyway it works perfectly for a couple of minutes, but then it crashes.
    I'll try some future release

    and no, I'd love to switch to linux (actually I did, at home) but in the office I use a company's pc so I can't

    thx
