Package: evolution
Severity: normal

Upgrading to evolution, therefore to evolution-exchange
2.26.1-2 breaks existing Exchange accounts authentication.

This bug should be rated Important as it breaks important feature
for some users. A similar bug has been filed against exolution-exchange


Another user reported the same issue yesterday:


Downgrading everything to 2.24.5 solves the issue, with a minor but still
annoying folders.db files corruption. Cf.:
