I am having a similar problem right at this moment with Evolution. I
know that I have about 75 mails on my pop server (amongst others,
several from this list!). They are being downloaded about one every 10
minutes or so, and then comes an error message that Evolution could not
get a POP summary and a second one that the pop server closed the
session. (By chance this mail was the latest to arrive. I can send
mails, as you can see)
I posted a forum thread on opensuse/applications (English) a couple of
weeks ago describing in more detail the stability problems I have been
having with Evolution. In case anyoone wants to look, the title of the
post is 'Evolution unstable' 

That is a misleading title.  If Evolution said "the pop server closed
the session" do you have a substantive reason for believing that this is
message is not true?  That and the POP summary message make me suspect a
network or provider issue.

 is tucked in the system at a level below the
application level and is, therefore, beset with the similar sicknesses
to MS Outlook?

I do not even know what this means.  

"tucked in the system at a level"????

Has anyone else noticed this behaviour? Does anyone have a solution?"

No.  But I do not use an EWS account, so that is one difference.

If you disable and account does the same behaviour still exhibit itself?
Have you tried disabling accounts and running them activated one at a
time to see if one account is the culprit?

Firstly, I have to apologise for misusing this thread with my problem,
which, in my defence, did look originally very similar to the
originator's post.  

In summary, though, I can confirm that there had been a problem with the
EWS server (the power was switched off by accident over the weekend!).
All now works again fine EWS and POP mails without any intervention from
me. However, the lesson learned is: the non-working EWS protocol screws
up both EWS and other account POP behaviour. The POP traffic was not
nil, but excruciatingly slow and unpredictable (I have finally
downloaded the 100 or so mails that had piled up on the POP server). The
EWS plug-in should not cause that kind of problem and/or the POP
protocol should not be susceptible to a blocked EWS account. Internal
Evolution functions (e.g. deleting/moving emails, quitting) should also
not be affected by the above protocol/traffic problems.
