Move IMAP server to another address, change DNS record

these are low-level things users usually cannot do, right? I mean, you
can change a local network, like unplug the wire and connect using
WiFi, but the server address will stay the same, including the DNS
record, no?

Evolution indefinitely keeps trying previous IP address,

Right. There is done some caching of the route, not directly in
evolution, but in GIO streams/gnutls/..., which evolution relies on. it
also relies on the network change notifications, which are received
through GNetworkMonitor. There can be an issue in the IMAPx code, how
it processes the network change notifications.

displaying an error "Connection timed out".

What happens next? Does the IMAP account reconnect properly after this
timeout error when you try to do anything else with it (or the same
action with it)?

I see a very similar behaviour with the Firefox, when the network
changes, it only may have set slightly shorter timeouts.
