At the risk of brining Evo devotees out of the woodwork with long sharp
I think it's just the Evo is a bit flakey.
Great eye candy, but flakey.
For example I'm not running evo right now becuase for some reason it
insisted on sending my username as bryano at 10.100.100.210 when trying to
get mail from the pop3 server in here.
I couldn't find a single config file or setting to tell it not to do that.
I even ended up trying to do this.
beths at t01230204lx:~/devel/CiTeC-fork-sem/source> cat /usr/bin/do_mail.sh
cat /var/mail/beths >> /home/beths/evolution/local/Inbox/mbox
echo " " > /var/mail/beths
And permutations thereof, in a cron, before realising that I had, better
things to do with my time.
Kmail, fetchmail, and Thunderbird all behaved.
More random anecdotal evidence was that on my last Linux desktop, Evo
had some sort of problem, sending mail directly to the company's
mailserver, so I ended up running Postfix locally, and had postfix relay
my outgoing email to the mailserver.
A bit obfusticated, I'm sure you'd agree.
