 Hello, can you try to check what Authentication Type your Exchange
 account uses?

Hm; this might have been a red herring... when I went to check the
authentication type I noticed that somehow the GAL server field had been
reset to empty (very odd because none of the other fields for my Evo
account had been reset!)

I did both change to use secure authentication and add back the GAL
server and now it works again.

I guess the annoying thing is that there is no error dialog that says
that the GAL server name is missing; it just comes back with another
password request dialog.

 Forget this above, I'm wrong, even I pass there proper user name and
 password, then it fails, so it seems to me (a guess), that GAL requires
 secure authentication.

   This must be settable. We did not have secure-password enabled a year
ago, so I have 'plaintext' checked. I just tried shifting it to secure,
and hey, that works now, which sounds good - but I cannot see my OWN
calendar - repeated password attempts.
  So I have gone back to plaintext. But maybe I need to talk to our
exchange people about calendar/mail/gal authentication and find out what
they think is enabled!
