When Evolution meets Microsoft Exchange

I tried to use Evolution (since it's the default email client in Ubuntu distro) to access Microsoft Exchange Server but failed. In Evolution Account Assistant, after I set Server Type to Microsoft Exchange and provide OWA URL in Receiving Email dialog box, I always got
Could not authenticate to Server.
Make sure the username and password are correct and try again.
Let me know if you have any idea about what's going wrong, but I decided to try something else.

sudo apt-get install evolution-mapi

This will also install libexchangemapi-1.0-0, which evolution-mapi depends on. Choose Exchange MAPI as Server Type and provide Server, Username and Domain name.
