Evolution sends won't fetch

The "contact" screen in Evolution is too large. I used Alt+F8 to try to resize and it won't budge. Any takers for this problem?

Evolution sends mail just fine, but won't go out and get mine from my ISP. Any takers for this one too?

I "fixed" this myself. Evol's Account Editor under Edit / Preferences / Evolution Mail / Account Editor / Receiving Mail has two buttons to check for Password and Supported Types. By having Evol check for supported types, which by example is "Password" (rather than APOP or Login, or some other types), the next time I did a Send/Recieve command in the Evolution Mail window, I was asked for my password, whether I wanted to save my password. Once that was done, SUCCESS. I'm online with my ISP mail server subsystems. Linux does make it easy to do.
