can't uninstall Evolution

I've got Evolution 2.0.4 w/Evolution Connector installed on a FC3 box. I connect to an Exchange server for email. Recently, whenever I try to send a message, I get the following error:

Error while performing operation, Could not send message.

I know that the problem resides on the FC3 box because I haven't made any changes to the Exchange server, and all other clients are functioning normally. My solution to this was to uninstall and reinstall Evolution, but when I run rpm -e evolution I get the following:

[root@optiplex ~]# rpm -e evolution
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by (installed) evolution-connector-2.0.4-1.i386 is needed by (installed) evolution-connector-2.0.4-1.i386 is needed by (installed) evolution-connector-2.0.4-1.i386
        evolution >= 2.0.1 is needed by (installed) evolution-connector-2.0.4-1.i386
        evolution = 2.0.4 is needed by (installed) evolution-devel-2.0.4-2.i386
When I try to remove it via FC3's GUI add/remove packages program, I get this error:

The following package could not be found on your system.  Installation cannot continue until it is installed.
Unlocatable Package:                             Required By:
Evolution                                                    "evolution-devel", "2.0.4", "2"

Can anyone tell me how I can get Evolution off my machine so that I can reinstall it, or better yet how I can fix it without having to remove it. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply...

I installed apt and synaptic, and used synaptic to remove Evolution and Evolution Connector. Then I used FC3's add/remove packages to reinstall them both. But when I open Evolution, my old account ( and my old problems ) are still there. Is there a configuration file somewhere that I need to delete?
