    11.04 Evolution IMAP Connection Error

    Hi

    Just upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 - from 10.10, and now experiencing connection problems with Evolution connecting to my IMAP Microsoft Mail Server.

    This was working, I was successfully receiving and sending mail via my IMAP setup in Evolution. Since the upgrade to 11.04, it stopped working with the error:

    "Error while Refreshing folder "INBOX". You must be working online to complete this operation."

    I check to see if it's in online mode, and it is. I set evolution to work in offline mode. Then I set it back to "online mode" and I get the error:

    "Error while Reconnecting to 'IMAP Server mail.foo.blah.de.bla". Could not connect to mail.foo.blah.de.bla: Connection Refused"

    I try:

    telnet mail.foo.blah.de.bla 143

    and this is successful.

    I have also inserted the host and ip in /etc/hosts, just in case.

    I closed evolution and removed:

    ~beecee/.cache/evolution

    And re-ran evolution - still no good.

    I've tried removing my IMAP account configuration, and recreating it from scratch, still no good.

    Evolution seems to be the only mail program I've been able to get working with Microsoft Exchange 2007. With Ubuntu 11.04 upgrade, it now seems to be broken.

    Alternatively, if you have a better mail client that definitely does work with Exchange 2007, suggestions welcome.

    Thanks

    Belinda

    Good to read that I'm not the only one with this problem.
    I've installed 11.04 64bit, not updated but used my 10.10 home partition.

    I have just set up 11.04 system Evolution IMAP connections to an Exchange 2003 system as well as an Exchange 2007 system and it works fine for me.

    Is that a fresh/clean install of 11.04? Or upgraded?

    I am having the same problem. I upgraded from 11.04 beta 2. It has me scratching my head.
    I might not be Cory Doctorow, but I am still a writer, who uses Linux... and that makes me cool.

    It is a fresh 64-bit install inside a VMware Player VM on a 10.04 host.

    It is only a test install, I am not silly enough to use a new Ubuntu release until at least 2 months have passed since the official release date.

    Are you guys using a proxy? Proxy support with IMAP appears to be busted in natty evolution.

    No proxy to connect to the IMAP server - direct connection.
