    Evolution can't set up Gmail IMAP account

    Hey folks,

    The last days, I desperately tried to set up an gmail account (IMAP) in Evolution.

    My distro is Ubuntu 12.10 with Gnome Shell ("Ubuntu Gnome") and I installed Evolution 3.6.2. At the moment, I'm using Thunderbird without any problems, but I'd like to try Evolution.

    When I start Evolution, the Evolution Account Assistant starts up and I can configure my account without any problems. I'm using these instructions:
    I also have IMAP activated in Gmail (obviously, since I'm already using IMAP successfully in Thunderbird). When the Account Assistant is finished, Evolution starts, but there's no account created. Only "on this computer". When I restart Evolution, the Account Assistant pops up again and I can create my account again, which again leads to no result. So my account is not only not working, it's not even created.

    Can anybody help me with this? What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks a lot,
