Installing evolution-ews


Hi all,
I’m running a Proof of Concept of PureOS in VMware fusion on my Mac and testing out various tools to see if I can make the switch.

One thing I am trying to do is install Evolution Mail client with the evolution-ews plugin. Through the GUI for applications it’s listed, but not enabled and can’t select it. If I try from Bash I get "evolution-ews is not available, but is referred to by another package. ‘evolution-ews’ has no installation candidate.

Is this because I’m only hitting the Purism channels?

Librem15 with no RAM/HDD option? A few other questions

From what I can see, evolution-ews is not included in the PureOS repos. I’ll see if we can’t include it. It is available in Debian if you want to pull the package down from there. It will take a couple days for us to bring in a new package into PureOS.


I’ve created a tracker it for this;


Thank you! No rush on my part and I’ll keep an eye out for it.


When did that change? I had no issues installing evolution-ews with apt. Didn’t have to do anything repository wise.


There has been a recent vulnerability found in the Evolution-EWS package:

It appears it is fixed in the version they have in experimental, I’ll take a look to see if this is the case and may bring that into PureOS.


What happened to this?


On July 3rd this issue was requested to be included in Buster. It is now in the hands of the Debian Release team. If they do not include it in Buster (which PureOS will inherit) we will look into porting the fix into PureOS.
