Re: [Evolution] I/O operation timing out

Update: I had pretty much decided the problem (getting I/O timeout with

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. 

That'll be interesting to sort out!

Are you (both) on wired or wireless connections? 
The apple--both my wife's and the one I'm testing today--are on
wireless. The Fedora 19 box is mostly on wireless, but the problem seems
to exist also when I switch to an Ethernet connection.

Are you both using the same server / account for mail?

To be honest it sounds like something is wrong with your NAT
router/firewall in that the packets are being sent to the wrong host -
it could be configuration or it could just be a bug, but it certainly
seems like packets are going astray.
Using a brand new Netgear RangeMax N150 WPN 824N wireless router. I
ditched my old one because I thought it might be the problem.

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.

It's probably because your office doesn't use a NAT'd network - or that
the NAT router works properly.

Yes--we're Nat'd there too.
