What happened to the evolution-mapi package in Ubuntu 16.04?

I've searched for the package but I can't find anything.

Will the mapi package be available again in the foreseeable future?

i looked a little bit around, and found that evolution-mapi was deprecated. so it won't come back to the ubuntu repositories.

after reading a bit further, the german wikipedia says evolution-mapi was integrated into evolution 2.26 and also the english wikipedia says evolution-ews is now recommended.


Thank you for you answer.

Yesterday i've googled arround a bit and found the same answer as you.

Now i've installed evolution-ews on my brand new installation of ubuntu 16.04. After that i configured the profile and started evolution.

But there is a bug after the first start and evolution will not display the new profile. After i have restarted ubuntu and startet evolution again the profile appeared.

But because i'm using Zentyal and no Exchange itself there is a problem in the servercommunication. The evolution-ews can purge the Serveraddresses, but after that evolution is not working with zentyal.

So i have to search again about that problem.

Nice greetings from Neusiedl am See Burgenland Austria to Somewhere in Austria. ;-)

  • 1) keep in mind: this is not a forum, so maybe someone will flag/remove this "answer"... -- 2) i use open standards and i'm luckily not stuck to exchange-servers... so i can't help you any further with this topic. -- 3) in your case maybe Zentyal or directly OpenChange would be the right place for some help. -- greetings from vienna ;-) May 24, 2016 at 9:42
  • interesting... im not sure what's going on with OpenChange (the exchange server of zentyal) - development seems (at least) very slow - but the server, dedicated client(?) and anything else related is dropped from the ubuntu repositories. May 24, 2016 at 9:53
  • thank you for you comment. i have tried to install the last version of evolution and its addons from github. but the same problem here. now i will try to find out more about this by contacting openchange. if i will have a solution on this i will post this as an answer. May 24, 2016 at 12:50

    openchange (as well as evolution-mapi) is no longer maintained upstream unfortunately.
