    Evolution - Error Failed to read a valid greeting from POP server

    I attempted to install Ubuntu 13.10 in another partition from my workhorse 12.04.
    Well, 13.10 froze after I logged in.

    I rebooted back to my old 12.04 and now I get an orange Evolution error
    when I press the Send/Receive button:
    Error while Fetching Mail.
    Failed to read a valid greeting from POP server pop.gmail.com

    Evolution had been pretty solid until I tried to install 13.10 in a separate partition.
    I have:
    /dev/sda1 = 13.10
    /dev/sda4 = 12.04
    /dev/sda3 = /home

    I fixed this error this way.
    - removed ~/.evolution
    - sudo apt-get purge evolution
    - went to Software Center and installed evolution
    - re-setup my 2 email accounts.

    Now I have a working Evolution 3.4.2
