The reporter is asking a question about imap passwords, not reporting a bug.

The IMAP password is unrelated to Evolution. The password is something that would have been defined mail server side. You should attempt to use your regular mail account password and if this doesn't work contact the mail server administrator for more information.

Can you help with this problem?
