Evolution Problem Retrieving Messages

I'm having a problem downloading my email with Evolution. When I try to retrieve me messages, I get the following error:

Error while Fetching Mail.

Cannot get POP summary: Operation now in progress.
It works fine in Thunderbird on this machine and in Mail on my Mac, so it's nota server problem.

Is it using the correct port to connect to? Any other details helps out.

Same problem here


I am having the exact same problem. This started after I made a backup of all my mail to move to home and now I can't receive any mail!! I don't know if the backup has anything to do with it, but it started right after the backup. Does anyone know anything about this? No settings have changed so it is not a settings problem. Can I delete one of the mbox.ev-summary files or something?

Thanks for any help
