Exclamation Evolution randomly stops checking POP3 account


Yeah so um... I was using evolution to check my two primary email accounts. One was my hotmail using hotwayd as a POP3 server. The other was my school account, which is also POP3. Both were working just peachily until a few days ago when my school account quit getting messages. It still sends messages fine through that same server, but no downloady. I thought my password was incorrect or something since it doesn't give an error when you enter an incorrect password; it just wont download the mail. But that wasn't it. All my other settings are kosher. I've also tried to delete and re-add that account, all to no avail. Any thoughts?

- ehdwuld:

Here's where you can find the Hotway Daemon. I set up my account exactly per instructiones on the site there.

http://hotwayd.sourceforge.net/


Oh, one more note, on my post:
I've discovered that my school account still functions through Mozilla Messenger. So is this just an Evolution bug with POP3 accounts?
