Re: [connector] <user>@<domain> vs. <domain>\<user>

Sushma Rai
Yes, As of now Exchange connector supports
<username> or <domainname>\<username>

But if one can authenticate using username@domainname (email id)
through OWA, then Exchange Connector also should support it.

You can definitely file a bug on this. Please
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=323345 and see if there is
already a bug on this before filing a new bug.

Thanks,
Sushma.

A lot of code inside the Connector already does, otherwise user@domain
would fail completely, which it doesn't. In fact, I vaguely remember
that some people reported success only when using that format.
It's just the LDAP related code which does not handle it.
