Exchange is an excellent mail handling system, with lots of benefits, no need to trash it here.

It's not a stupid message; it's telling you it can't authenticate you. To tell you explicitly "cannot find credentials servers and services" would be a security hole, because if it could find them and merely told you "bad authentication" you'd know you have a bad password, and could try a different one.
I've watched with TCPDUMP what's happening when I access in the Menue
'Subscribe to Other user's Calendar': it does a DNS lookup for
kerberos.OCLC.org which is failing (yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy is our DNS server,
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is my laptop):

The domain OCLC.ORG is the part of my mail addr, i.e. my addr 
The IT folks of my company gave me the hint that the above nslookup should not
be, for example, '_kerberos._udp.OCLC.ORG', but '_kerberos._udp.oa.OCLC.ORG'
(i.e. in the zone oa.OCLC.ORG) which indead is working with nslookup:

$ nslookup -type=SRV '_kerberos._udp.oa.OCLC.ORG'
Server:         yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy
Address:        yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy#53

Non-authoritative answer:
_kerberos._udp.oa.OCLC.ORG      service = 0 100 88 oadc5server.oa.oclc.org.
_kerberos._udp.oa.OCLC.ORG      service = 0 100 88 oadc01ewbe.oa.oclc.org.
_kerberos._udp.oa.OCLC.ORG      service = 0 100 88 oadc1server.oa.oclc.org.
_kerberos._udp.oa.OCLC.ORG      service = 0 100 88 oadc2server.oa.oclc.org.

Why Evo is asking for '_kerberos._udp.OCLC.ORG' and not for 
Active Directory LDAP schemes can be mis-configured and yet still appear to work. Check earlier to see if Evolution or PAM (if you're using PAM), was given oa.oclc.org or just oclc.org.

What domain are you in? It's possible that Evolution assumes that SMTP address reflects your domain. If you are in the OA domain, it should not hurt to list your address as x...@oa.oclc.org. Mail sent to x...@oclc.org will still find you, and you can set the reply-to: header field to x...@oclc.org.

I have this issue at work, as for testing purposes my email address is currently chuc...@exchange.microsoft.com, but the alias chuc...@microsoft.com works as well. But my email client keeps wanting to send @exchange.microsoft.com which confuses my friends into thinking my email address has changed.

Good luck and let us know.
