Hi there;

Thanks for the great looking tool! I'm hoping it'll help me out big time... but I don't seem to be able to authenticate my test account.

I can login fine using both an android email client, and the exchange connectivity tester from microsoft located here:

but I get the following when trying to use this account with EAS tester:

"The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized"

The password for the account has an "@" sign in it... I tried url encoding it, but that didn't make any difference ;-)

Also, the server has 4 dotted parts in it's domain name, (e.g.

Any suggestions?

Thanks again!


Note: I have 2 other accounts that seem to authenticate, but throw the following type of error whenever any example xml test is run. For example, a search:

System.Exception: Invalid XML namespase mapping - Search does not map to a namespace

Note that both of these other accounts seem to authenticate using Microsoft's Exchange Connectivity Tool, but fail on sending a request there of sorts too.. For example, this one that says "Method Not Allowed" for a google based exchange account:
