Ubuntu – Evolution Error MAPI_E_LOGON_FAILED

KB ID 0000375 Dtd 16/01/11

Problem

Seen when trying to connect the Evolution mail client to a Microsoft Exchange server (via evolution-mapi). As soon as you hit authenticate you will see the following error.

Authentication failed. MapiLogonProvider:MAPI_E_LOGON_FAILED

MAPI_E_LOGON_FAILED

Solution

In my case it was a very quick fix, instead of using the DNS/Netbios name of the Exchange server put in the servers IP address.

MAPI_E_LOGON_FAILED

If all else fails, and you cannot rectify the problem with the solution above. You can always setup domain authentication.
