Re: [Evolution] open

You never said if you use IMAP or POP?

concurrent connections to use" to 1.

Other places that can cause hangs are: spam filtering; remote address
book issues; DNS issues. But they should all timeout eventually.

modules at

If you want to post any debugging output here (or elsewhere) make sure
that any private information (such as email addresses or passwords) is
removed first - and don't post massive files here, use something like
