That's a POP3-server-generated message.  It basically means someone

reset its state (i.e. recopy your mailbox) before you try to read it
again.  How often do you check you mail ?

Anyhow, definitely not an Evolution problem...

Maybe not technically, but what the original poster is complaining about
is the fact that Evo forgets the password.  This is tremendously
annoying, especially if your POP server isn't all that reliable (which
is the case too often, and frequently there's nothing the user can do
about it).  What would be much nicer is if Evo would parse the returned
error message for certain types and then not forget the password in
cases like this where the password is not the problem.  I think Evo may
do this already, but I'm not sure.  If not it sure would be nice...


The strings are all different for different servers parsing them is not
going to happen.  About the only thing we could do it fill in the passwd
blank with the previous password as *s.  That probably makes sense, but
it does make the "I entered my password wrong" case slightly more
