View Full Version : [ubuntu] Evolution-exchange calendar lost sync

September 8th, 2008, 09:13 PM
This is just a note for people who messed up their calendar like me. Only some meetings were showing up, some recurring meetings had only one instance, etc... I was looking for a way to re-sync with exchange. Everything looked fine in outlook web access, but I couldn't get it to download into evolution. Eventually I found the cache file in:


I deleted this file, and on the next run it got all the right information.

Now if I could do the same for my inbox...

Without finding an official solution, here's how I forced it to download the older messages...

Exit Evolution:

evolution --force-shutdown
Backup your $HOME/.evolution:

tar -cvfz ~/myevo.tgz ~/.evolution
Clean out the crap:

rm -rf .evolution/exchange/ .evolution/mail/exchange/
Restart evolution ( it may take a few minutes to re-sync ).

I am looking for a way to sync evolution calendar with exchange - you seem to have experience with that, do you think you could point me in the right direction?
