Why has Evolution stopped accessing Yahoo POP mail?
I've been using Evolution for email with various email providers, including Yahoo for years with no problem.
Since the past week or so, I've noticed Evolution displaying "error while fetching mail" at the bottom of the window during send/receive. No other hints that anything is wrong. I discovered it was a problem with Yahoo by disabling my email a/c in preferences, which stopped the message. Sure enough, checking my Yahoo inbox thru the web showed it was full of unread mail. I tried deleting and reconfiguring the settings for my Yahoo a/c in Evolution, but no change.
I thought this must be a Yahoo problem because Evolution has been working fine for years.
I've just tried accessing Yahoo POP mail under WinXP / with Outlook and it works fine, so it looks like an Evolution problem. Interesting that this only affects Yahoo though???
Was an update released for Evolution recently? Something's got messed up somewhere...
