    Unhappy Re: How to sync evolution with AKO account

    Hi philidox,

    This is a pretty helpful guide. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work anymore. I set it up the way you pointed out and I tried with explicitly specifying the ports listed at https://help.us.army.mil/cgi-bin/ako...i=&p_topview=1 , but to no avail. Basically, it never asks for the password.

    If I enter my full e-mail address as my user name (first.last@us.army.mil), I get asked a password. However, for obvious reasons, it can't authenticate me.

    Any clues as to what is going on?

    EDIT: Definitely a problem with Evolution. Thunderbird works just fine with it.

    Regards,

    zakaluka.

    FYI... this tutorial does work still... EXCEPT when he gets to the SMTP settings, instead of entering smtp.us.army.mil you'll need to enter mailrouter.us.army.mil. Other than that, everything else is as he says.

    You're putting in the wrong username. It should just be the 'alias' part, or just the part before the '@' symbol. So if your email address is alias@us.army.mil, then just put in 'alias' for your username.
    I was having the same problem and this fixed it.
