Evolution doesn't ask for password

I just installed Fedora Core 2 and was trying to configure Evolution with my e-mail account. When I got to the log-in password, it said that Evolution would ask for the password the first time I tried to log-in.

Well, I tried to log-in, but Evolution never asks for a pw. Instead, it just says that "log-in failed to connect".

Is there a way to get it to ask for the pw?

Thank you for your support!

I would go back and double check that all of your settings for that e-mail account are correct in evolution. In my experience when I have had trouble with evolution and a new account, 99% of the time its something I have mistakenly done wrong in the configuration process.
