Hi, it depends. It's not a large change, but not a tiny too. It also depends how one would solve this. My not so simple idea on this is: a) using File->New->Mail Account to create "corporate-like" accounts doesn't feel right, even the addons like evolution-ews and evolution-mapi do that b) a better option would be to add a new Edit->Server Accounts (the wording is awful, I know), where you fill only User name and E-Mail (or server domain, if not email), and then the wizard will check what that domain offers based on the SVR records, well-known HTTPs entry points and so on and offers to add all sources it'll find for the user, thus you gen not only Mail, but also Contacts, Calendar, Memos and Tasks, if the server supports it. Furthermore, users will be able to manage which sources should be visible in the UI (offered to other evolution-data-server clients) here, not like it is done currently, where you get all or nothing. Having a working prototype would not be that hard, but fine tune it will be harder. Part of the fine-tuning will be also the extensibility of the new Server Account dialog, to be able to attach custom autodiscovery methods to it.
