    Default Zimbra & Evolution Compatibility

    Hi All.

    I have searched this forum but cannot find any recent and useful information regarding using Evolution as a Zimbra client.

    I am currently using Ubuntu 10.10 X64 which has Evolution 2.30.3 by default. I am using the appliance version of zimbra (Version Release 7.0.0_GA_3077.UBUNTU8_64 UBUNTU8_64 NETWORK edition.).

    Currently I can access all the mail and have read access on the calendars, however no matter what I do, I cannot get evolution to write to the zimbra calendar. It's got full read/write with google calendars etc. But when I try and save an appointment to a zimbra calendar, or make a change to a zimbra calendar, I get a message that says
    "Cannot save event
    'Zimbra-Calendar' is a read-only calendar and cannot be modified. Please select a different calendar that can accept appointments"

    I have tried to install the evolution connector for my install, but this won't compile, as per the last couple of posts in this thread http://www.zimbra.com/forums/evoluti...or-ubuntu.html

    Can anybody please shed any light on what I may be doing wrong before I raise a support ticket about this. It's the last thing stopping me from buying licences and performing a migration.

    Cheers
    Matt.

    **UPDATE** It seems that this may be caused because evolution is not actually asking me for credentials to view the calendar. If I leave the username box blank on the evolution calendar set up it will still view the calendar. So I suppose this question is now one of how do I force Evolution to ask for credentials to the calendar?
