What do you mean ? 

That I had FridayAfter5 induced dyslexia and read your version string wrong. :)

Retrieving emails in IMAP is quite common. 


My server is courier-imap 4.15, with emails stored in Maildir.
Evolution is able to tell me when a new email arrive, but the
folder remains empty.
You have a display filter applied, probably the "Show" drop-down,
sure that reads "All Messages".
No kidding ?
Seriously, i would'nt post here before having checked that.

Ok, but people do it all the time.  It is the second most common question here.  And I've done it myself;  it 
is a bit of UI it is easy to trigger accidentally.

Is there a some way to debug the IMAP exchange from evolution.
I can considere disabling TLS/SSL server-side and sniff the trafic to
check if evolution realy get info about the INBOX.

I'm on my phone so I don't have the link - but yes.  You can run the app with environment variable[s] set 
which will display the entire client/server conversation.  But if you are getting new-mail notification I 
wouldn't suspect the account configuration but rather a UI option.
