Hello:

I too am a newbie and also use sbcglobal for my isp/email. I am seeing a similar problem with evolution. I set up the pop and smtp settings using the same format as icemncnth. Whenever I try to get my mail, it will start to get the POP summary and then error out saying that it couldn't retrieve the summary due to an input/output error. I can enter the exact same settings in Kmail and everything works with no issues. I can also surf with no issues so I know that my internet connection is working properly for the browser at least. I know that the sbc/yahoo server requires authentication. I entered in my user name here like "bigdog". Should I have entered "bigdog@sbcglobal.net"?????? I would really like to get evolution working. I think that it has more functionality than Kmail.

Thanks,

Tic Toc Doc

I found the problem. Make sure when you go into settings...click on your account....edit..then the sending tab. I had to check the "Server Requires Authentication" box then everything worked fine. When the server was asking for your password it wasn't letting you enter it causing an error. At least that solved my problem. Hope it solves yours.

tictocdoc...

the answer to your question is yes. You have to put in your whole email address...as your user name. Not just your user name. Did some calling at SBC Global and found out that they are the server for many different ISP's. If you don't put the full email address as your user name it doesn't know (the server) what subsystem to route you to.
