I decided to give Evolution another try (It was my favorite mail
application for Linux) after the switch to GNOME 3 by Debian Testing
(Wheezy) made the new version of Evolution unusable as would refuse to
download new messages telling me it had problems with connecting to the
mail servers. Now  have Evo 3.2.2 and although it is in online-mode & I
have an internet connection, I get told that Evolution is offline and
therefor unable to fetch new mails.

So it was online previously?  Probably you need to toggle back to online
mode via File -> Work Online.  Or clicking the connectivity
icon/indicator in the bottom left corner.

On the one hand Evolution was always online, the connectivity icon in
the bottom left corner suggests it is online, switching it off and then
on again doesn't change the behavioir. Using the menu 'Work offline'
says the same. Looking at Evolution this way, it is online.

I get the error messages that Evolution was offline when either looking
for new mails (for example right after starting the programme) or when
changing to a different folder.

Right now I writing this message from Icedove (Debian's version of
Thunderbird). The existence of an unsent mail shows up in the 'Drafts'
folder of Gmail in Evolution, but I cannot see and edit the message
itself. There is no mail displayes in the message list and I get the
following (orange background color)  new warning right above the message

Fehler bei »Neue Nachrichten werden für Offline-Modus abgerufen«.

Nachrichtenrumpf in Antwort auf FETCH konnte nicht gefunden werden.

In English it should be something like:

"Error when retrieving new message for offline-mode"

"Message body in response to FETCH could not be found"

Beforehand I got different warnings that retrieving wasn't possible at
all, as Evolution was in offline mode.

I now deactivated the option in account settings to "Automatically sync
remote messages with local ones", that didn't have any effect.

As Evolution won't let me send the mail, I had to use Icedove once again.

This is what it says:

"The reported error was "Fehler bei Welcome-Antwort:Die Wartezeit für
die Verbindung ist abgelaufen"."

Error with Welcome-response: Waiting time for connection has expired
