Note that I'm not using gnome because it stopped working. I'm now

use evolution, but I cannot because of this error.

Any ideas?

make sure you have gnome-keyring in applications to run at startup

Do you have your account

Thank you both for your information. I didn't associate Milan Crha's bit of info with evolution, but followed 
you just in case and now evolution works.

What went wrong?
Father Time meets the Android. When I first installed Xfce to be able to use my computer to fight gnome (and, 
finally, losing) I set up the accounts directly. However, I wasn't using evolution and because I was using a 
different account to email fedora about the problem, I didn't check up on the email of the online account 
that I entered in. (It must have been a few days later) I remember finding the email from GMail informing me 
that someone with an *android* was trying to access my account and I didn't allow it. This computer is a 
linux, no android in it, and I didn't associate the two. Anyway, when I check a little while ago, Online 
Accounts said that the info was out of date, so I re-entered the info.

THIS TIME, the same message came up and I saw it within minutes. An "aha!" moment occurred. I'm allowing this 
so-called android to access the account and evolution is now happy.
