Do you see a yellow exclamation mark in the bottom left of the screen? When I started using it first it wouldn't send for me but did not give me an error, however when I clicked on the icon it did give me an error message, but this was not obvious from the start.

You know I did not change a thing and its working now


I did not know that it was downloading all mails in myName|___Personnal_folder

Rather then just "on this computer" folder.

But yes, its working like a charm now.

Same problem

I had never used Evolution, because I principally use gmail. However, my new work email uses Exchange 2003, and allows only 35 kB worth of server data, so I'm back to trying terminal based email so I can download and save my messages.

The problem is I can send email, but I can't receive it. My login credentials authenticate just fine, and the scanning-for-new-mail box comes up, but there are no messages in any folders (except for the one test message in the sent mail folder that did reach its destination).

No error messages either. Is this weird or what? Ideas?
