Re: [Evolution] I/O operation timing out

I now have Evo 3.8.5 on Fedora 19. So everything's up to date in Kansas
City. The problem persists. I'm doing 'send/receive' on three accounts,
all the same domain, all hosted at I've done some traceroutes
and my impression is that most if not all of the jumps take longer when
the attempt times out. This presumably would mean that it's not a
problem at the end. So I repeat my earlier query: Is there
some way to tell Evolution to wait longer before it times out? I've
already set net.ipv4.tcp_syn_retries to 7, which is supposed to give
about 90 seconds (per
But I'm getting the timeout error after about 45 seconds and 60 seconds.
And it's still intermittent--sometimes stuff downloads right away;
sometimes only one or two accounts download and then it times out.

Sometimes one or two of the three accounts I'm connected to there
download before the error occurs, sometimes none. About half the time it
works OK.

The host of my domain says they've checked and their system is ok. Also,
my wife, using Mac Mail, doesn't have these problems. And the problems
occur for me at work as well as at home. My other internet connections
do not seem problematic.

I tried switching from tls to no encryption, but that did not help.
