    Evolution no longer fetching emails - no error message

    Hello everyone.

    Evolution has suddenly stopped fetching new email from my personal website account.

    I fetch new emails on my iphone without any problem, but almost none of them show up on my Evolution client. The only exceptions are a couple that already belong to my contact list. But the client has refused to download many other emails from my contact list, so that can't be the culprit.

    No problems in sending emails.
    I'm using Ubuntu 12.04
    Server type IMAP
    server: mail.hyperboreans.com Port 143 with no encryption
    I am not sure about telnet the mail server successfully, though.

    Thanks in advance

    Funny.

    If you meant the icon on the lower left corner, it's plugged in. I get 1 out of say, 15 emails delivered to the inbox.
    That couldn't happen if I was in "offline mode"

    Re: Evolution no longer fetching emails - no error message

    Hi,
    still have problems? I got "this" too...

    Once Evolution reported an error and from this time it was not fetched emails anymore in one of the subscribed folders...
    And it happened to be the inbox folder
    And it happened right when I started to like Evolution

    Fortunatelly I found a solution, I just unsubscribed and resubscribed the affected folder, seems to be working now.

    Hope this helps.
    Feri
