View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Evolution sends but won't receive e-mail

November 11th, 2008, 03:34 PM
Hello. I'm new to Linux (<48 hrs.)

I've installed:

Ubuntu release 8.10 (intrepid)
Kernel Linux 2.6.27-7-generic
GNOME 2.24.1
Dell 530S with an Intel Pentium Dual-Core CPU E2160 @ 1.8 GHz
ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO running ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver
2 gb RAM

This is a dual boot machine with XP Pro sp3.

The following installed by default: evolution 2.24.1-0ubuntu2

I've configured it for my ISP SMTP mail server. I do not know how to set up the receiving e-mail server. What server type should I use and how should I configure it?

I can send e-mails successfully, but cannot receive any.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Okay, my bad. I've figured it out. I needed to configure my incoming POP server. Duh!
