I'm new to Evolution, 3.10.4, working under Xubuntu Linux.

I made an account to one of my eMail-addresses, IMAP and SMTP. And it 
works, that means I can send and recieve eMails.

But if I klick the Button "Verschicken/Abrufen" (that's like 
"Send/Recieve" in english?), I get a window "E-Mails verschicken und 
abrufen" which shows a progress bar (?) and never closes!

Even while this windos is open, I can send and recieve eMails.

What to do?

By the way: do You speak german too here on the list?

Thanks for help!

I'm going to say "me too" on this issue.

When I first started using Evolution about a year ago, I was using
version 3.8.4 under Ubuntu 13.10 and had no problems with automated mail
checking. Then I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 (LTS), with an
upgrade to Evolution 3.10.4, and my automated checking stopped working.
I have now switched to Xubuntu 14.04 (LTS) also with Evolution 3.10.4
and I'm convinced the same issue persists.

I wanted to find the time to analyse this myself -- including looking at
the logs on the mail server to see if the issue might be there -- before
seeking help on the list, but I have not yet and so I'm piggybacking on
Ulrich's timely post.

I have two POP and three IMAP accounts configured. I have no problems
with the POP accounts. The three IMAP accounts are on two different
servers. Two are on a Courier server (which is, admittedly, getting old)
and one is on a relatively new Dovecot server. The servers have not
changed between the time I was using 3.8.4 on Ubuntu 13.10 and now using
3.10.4 on Xubuntu 14.04.

I find that the in boxes of the IMAP accounts generally (but not always)
do not refresh unless I switch to another folder and then go back to the
in box ... which is tedious at best, considering I have them configured
to check every few minutes. Clicking the "Send/Receive" button results
in [1], where the POP accounts (on the same older Courier server as two of the IMAP accounts) finish checking 
quickly, but the IMAP accounts just sit there forever.

As I say, I'm not 100% convinced that Evolution is the problem -- as I
wonder if the IMAP servers might be the issue, or at least part of the
issue -- which is why I haven't asked about this yet. But if I can
provide any additional information that would address Ulrich's issue, as
well as mine, I'm open to trying to find the time to do so.
