Evolution stopped receiving mail from server
I have been using Evolution 2.12.1 for a few months on Ubuntu 7.1 without any problems. Suddenly, after a few days of a suspiciously empty inbox, I went to my server (imap.gmail.com) and found that Evolution has stopped receiving mail from my gmail account.
When I press the Send/Receive button in Evolution, I get no error messages. The Send/Receive message pops up like normal and has the usual download bar. When the message says "complete" and closes, there is no new mail in my inbox or any other Evolution folder. Also, I found I can still send email from Evolution through my server without any problems.
Prior to this problem, I did nothing out of the ordinary. I did not change any mail/server preferences in either my gmail or Evolution account. I did not change any internet or power preferences on my computer.
Curious to see where the problem originated, I installed Thunderbird and set Thunderbird up to send/receive mail from my server. I found that I had absolutely no problems receiving email with Thunderbird, including email I have received since. Therefore, I believe that the problem lies with in the Evolution program itself.
Before I send a "Bug Report," I was curious as to what others in the Ubuntu community think of this problem, and if anyone has any ideas about what possibly has gone wrong.
Can you help with this problem?
