About half the time or so when I do Send/Receive, I get this error

Error while Fetching Mail.

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.

Update: I had pretty much decided the problem (getting I/O timeout with
Send/Receive on Evolution--doesn't seem to affect sending new email) lay
in my Motorola 5101 modem from TimeWarner. It may still lie there but I
just noticed this: My wife is out of town for a week. She uses a Mac and
Mac's Mail, which is on all the time. With her gone, I haven't had any
problems with my Evolution mail failing to connect ("Error while
fetching mail from .... Could not connect to .... I/O operation timed
out"). So I pulled out an old MacBook and sure enough, as soon as I
turned on Mail, I started getting the timeout problems again. Turn off
Mail and Evolution mail works fine. 

Interestingly this does not happen on this computer at work, in a small
office where the boss uses Mac and Mac Mail all the time--even when he
was using earlier versions of Mac.
