Retrieving POP message X, and hangs...

Asked by Ernst J. on 2014-07-10

Hi,
using evolution 3.2.3 on Ubuntu 12.04 long time without problems. Since about 3 weeks ago, almost every time I start evolution it hangs under "Retrieving POP message X" alt. "Fetching mail" and I can't stop the retrieving/fetching (Cancel) or even shut down/quit evolution.

How can I get information (error log?), why e. doesn't succeed in retrieving my POP messages and is unable to be shut down/quited?

They may have changed their settings.

@a-wh666: checked with them and they havn't changed their settings.

Anyway, efter I killed evolution [pkill -1 evolution], restarted the computer and opened evolution again, it worked. Don't know what exactly the problem was, but it is solved - so far.
