Exchange on Ubuntu

by drphrozen on May 10th, 2012

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 and wanted to setup my development environment. I find myself using Outlook more often to manage tasks, but im not a fan of the web based approach (although Exchange 2010 web interface has improved a lot!).

I then did some googling, and found davmail. I think i tried this aproach before and was disappointed, but i thought “what the heck” and tried it again.

The install of davmail was fine, i left all settings as per default and only changed the path to the exchange web interface. There were one issue, a missing tray icon, this is because of Unity http://www.howtogeek.com/68119/how-to-bring-app-icons-back-into-unitys-system-tray/.

Here is a summary of the settings i used:

Thunderbird

IMAP

localhost:1143

SMTP

localhost:1025

Lightning

http://localhost:1080/users/<user@example.com>/calendar

LDAP

localhost:1389
