the following address had a permanent error

I'm getting this email from M+ Extreme Email Engine <>
evrytime I access my inbox through evolution mail:

The original message was received Wed, 15 Apr 2009 22:03:21 -0600

----- The following address had a permanent error -----
<>; originally to <>
The recipient 'evolution' is unknown at domain ''.
How can I fix this?

I am guessing evolution mail is designed to either check an account "evolution" or e-mail the account evolution for some reason (ie an e-mail to say xxx user has logged in?), that does not appear to actually exist on I dunno the e-mail system so can not really help you their.

Check your evolution settings. Maybe some default sample setting is still in place in the configuration which was supposed to be overwritten by the actual user.

Novell obviously does not have an account (now we know! :-) and the fact that Evolution tries to read it shows that it has an e-mail account setting for that bogus e-mail address that it tries to connect to.

I've got this problem sorted out by checking "disable forwarding" under "forwarding POP/IMAP" on my gmail account. Now, the error notification is gone when I access my inbox. Thanks everybody!
