GNOME Online Accounts and IMAP / SMTP

with 3 comments

Starting from GNOME 3.7.91, you can configure your IMAP/SMTP accounts via GNOME’s single sign-on framework and then use them from Evolution.

Using a GOA configured IMAP/SMTP account in Evolution

Many thanks to Matthew Barnes for making the required adjustments in Evolution Data Server and making sure that it landed in time for the 3.8.0 release later this month.

  1. And what will happen if I want to use Evolution without GNOME? Is it now Gnome Online Accounts a required dependency of Evolution or is it just an option?

    • GNOME Online Accounts integration is optional. There is a –enable-goa flag in Evolution Data Server.
