Setting up an exchange server is required for the complicated testing,
while during 2015-2017 Microsoft has been deploying the office365
infrastructure to the public outlook.com service, which means the outlook.com may have
reliable EWS support, available for the testing of evolution-ews.

Steps:

1.  start evolution and choose to add an account
2.  fill your name and email address
3.  skip automatic configuration discovery
4.  Choose "Exchange Web Services (EWS)" as account type
5.  username will be prefilled, as well as host url
6.  Press "Fetch URL" button
7.  you will be prompted for your password
8.  in the next screen, "Global Address List", enable "offline
    access", press "Fetch Lists" and choose "Global Address List"
    in the combobox (there should be only one list anyway).
9.  finish setup
10. click "Continue" three times
11. click "Apply"

Expected Result:
vp6. then both Host url and OAB url will be automatically filled
vp9. you will get prompt for password a second time and Evolution will
be properly setup

Note-20170605:
vp6, Fetch URL may be not work when the authentication is "NTLM"
depends on the configuration of the EWS server.
If this happens, we can try to change the authentication to Basic.
