Unhappy Ximian initial setup problems

I had ximian evolution (email app) working for a few days from my default RH 8.0 install. Tonight I got some error (don't remember it) and now everytime i start evolution it wants me to re-enter all of my configuration info - name,pop servers etc ) Once i enter the stuff it works fine. If I exit the program and go back in all of that configuration info i just entered is gone and i have to redo it.

any thoughts? Ximian's site was pretty much worthless.

Thanks in advance !

switch to user root and run:

cd /home

chown -R yourusername.yourusergroup /home/your_username

that fixed it in my system. i think something is screwed wiith red carpet.

and yes, mark "SAVE current setup" before u logout.
