I'm having the exact same issue with the exact same versions of Ubuntu and Evolution. I have 5 mail boxes setup and am not receiving e-mail on any of them. This was working fine when I set it up, but now can't seem to receive mail.

Same here too. My email is not getting downloaded. I do not get any errors also.

My problem was just plain silly. I download mail from several systems and one of them was set to remove mail from the server. It still doesn't explain why I wasn't receiving Google mail. However, once I corrected the Outlook mail and set it to leave messages on the server, all was well.

I have a similar problem. I see email on webmail for my account.

When I do a send/receive in Evolution it seems to erradicate everything at the server but then afterwards I can't see any of the downloaded email in Evolution.

Any ideas?

Hi Ian,

The only thing I can think of offhand would be if you have a keyword search criteria set, so you are only seeing the mail currently that matches that keyword. Does that make sense?

So Evolution is only receiving half the emails sent to my server. What should I do if it is a bug? If I reset, will I loose all existing emails that I've filed?

Can you help with this problem?
