View Full Version : [ubuntu] Evolution:- send/receive button ghosted

February 5th, 2010, 11:33 AM
I have just reinstalled Evolution under Ubuntu 9.10. Unfortunatly I can not send or receive mail. All my sending mail is going straight into my outbox.I cannot receive any incoming mail via my ISP. I have noticed on my Evolution screen the Send / receive Button on the Toolbar is ghosted. my previous installation showed the Send / Receive in full colour , I only had to press this and my inbox would be replenished with incoming mail. Could someone advise if I have missed a step when I reinstalled. Thank you very much Gjohnno

Have a look at the bottom left corner of the Evolution window, is the connection icon "broken" ?

Probably you are in offline mode, click this icon to go into online mode.
