Exchange Web Services receiving options

Receiving Email

On the Receiving Email page (accessible via Edit ▸ Preferences ▸ Mail Accounts ▸ Edit ▸ Receiving Email):

  • Enter your username for that server.

  • Either manually enter the Host URL and OAB URL, or click Fetch URL which will ask you for your password and then try to automatically fill in the values.

    If you are in an organizational environment, you may want to contact your system administrator for more information.

  • Select your authentication type in the Authentication list, or click Check for Supported Types to have Evolution check for supported authentication mechanisms. Some servers do not announce the authentication mechanisms they support, so clicking this button is not a guarantee that available mechanisms actually work.

Receiving Options

On the Receiving Options page (accessible via Edit ▸ Preferences ▸ Mail Accounts ▸ Edit ▸ Receiving Options):

  • If you want Evolution to check automatically for new messages, click the Check for new messages every … minutes option and select the frequency in minutes.

  • You can also define if Evolution checks for new messages in all folders.

  • If you would like to have a copy of the address book on the server for offline access to it, enable Cache offline address book and click Fetch list. Afterwards, select the address book from the available options.

  • Select if you want filters to be automatically applied on mail that you receive, if spam should be automatically filtered, and if mail on the server should be synchronized with your local copy for offline access to it.
