Evolution won't connect. password/keyring issue?

Asked by adam marsan on 2011-05-16

Binary package hint: evolution

I'm new to linux; I just installed ubuntu 11.04 and evolution came loaded on it. i set up my pop/hotmail acct but it doesn't connect. gives an -ERR authentication failed. i went on xchat-gnome but no one could fix the problem. they said it was a problem with the keyring and password not being remembered, but i don't know what that means. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
