    Re: 11.04 Evolution IMAP Connection Error

    Yes, driving me mad too, but I like my Ubuntu in so many other ways, so not switching over yet. I have all sorts of probs with the IMAP, Evolution, gmail/google Apps integration which is so odd considering Google use Linux and are less inclined to Microsoft!!!

    Personally, my ideal would be Outlook, IMAP and gmail/Google Apps on my Ubuntu.... I do like Outlook, I must say, just don't like MS.

    I have to keep my browser open to do calendar and I have to create a new offline addressbook. Not good.

    Maybe this might still help anybody.
    I was struggling with the same issue, not only at the upgrade to 11.04 (a few months ago) but also today at the upgrade to 11.10.

    In my case it was the SOCKS-entry in my Network-Proxy-Settings menu. I just got rid of this entry, applied the settings and mailing works fine again.

    Regards!

    For me 11.04 seems to have fixed my IMAP issue, though I have not tried with MS Outlook. That shall be interesting!

    I found a very simple solution without changing system settings:

    In Evolution, go to Edit | Preferences | Network Preferences

    Change Proxy Settings to "Direct connection to the Internet"

    For me, this was not the solution. I had to leave the SOCKS entry empty, this was the only solution that helped me.

    fadiof,

    Same problem here. Where exactly is this "SOCKS" field? In Evolution? In Ubuntu configuration?

    Thanks!

    Hi guys if you are behind proxy then removing the socks entry from proxy setting would save your life.

    Thanks guys for your support.
