Hey guys,

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. In the "status bar" at the bottom of
the screen I'm informed that Evo tries to retrieve messages from the
servers, (All IMAP accounts) but does not make any progress. In fact
Evolution seems to have only issues with Yahoo Mail and Gmail accounts.
Other mail accounts work quite well (Those also use IMAP).

Any ideas how I could fix this issue?

I know several people have already answered this, but just to be a bit
more explicit: 

IF NetworkManager is running
THEN Evo will ask NM for network status
ELSE Evo will make its own determination (not sure how).

IF NM is installed
AND NM is configured to manage your network interface
THEN NM will report connectivity correctly
ELSE it will report "Offline" even when you're on-line.

It turns out that problems with Offline in Evo are often caused by NM
not being configured to manage the interface.

Hope that clears it up.

OK, I'll look into the NM settings then. Still I do not understand, why
Evo works with some mail accounts but not with others. It seems to me
that it has a problem with certain mail servers.
