Subject: [Kde-pim] kontact and MS Exchange almost 100%
working via OWA with davmail



Hi All,

I got MS exchange almost working 100%.

Only problem I'm having is if one makes any changes in kontact to the exchange
calendar, it is not pushing the updates back to the exchange server, ie the
calendar is one way sync only it seems at the moment.

Is this just me, or everyone else as well? Any ideas on what we can do to try
fix it? It's so close to fixing/workaround to a big bug
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=78629

My details and howto.
I'm using kdepim 4.6.1.
This all requires OWA enabled on server.
