I have written a patch to add the Evolution wrapper. It will display
a Zenity warning dialog for Exchange users, with the following text:
Exchange accounts are unsupported in Evolution (and
Pine) on Athena 9 machines. When using the default
configuration in this version, Evolution will fail to
connect to the Exchange server. You can access
your Exchange account using a web browser on this
machine, at http://owa.mit.edu. Or, you can run
Evolution on a Debathena machine.
Select "OK" to continue anyway.
Select "Cancel" to exit without starting Evolution.
Also, under the guiding principle of minimizing changes to Athena 9, I
tend to agree with Andrew that we can live without touching the
now that port 143 connections to imap.exchange are refused immediately.
