Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: evolution
Evolution seems to have developed an affinity for Network Manager.
Without Network Manager installed, I can usually send an email (via
SMTP) immediately after startup. However, a few minutes later, pressing
send/recieve, or composing a new email leads to messages that just sit
in the outbox. I can use telnet to connect to the SMTP server Evolution
is configured to use, so that isn't the issue. The status in the
send/recieve dialog is "Waiting...". I did not have this issue with
Edgy or Dapper.
With Network Manager installed, -and- networking enabled, the issue goes
away. If Networking is disabled in Network Manager, IMAP works, but SMTP
My uninformed guess would be that there is a check missing in the
evolution code for SMTP, where is should be checking if Network Manager
is running, but is rather assuming it is by default.
** Affects: evolution (Ubuntu)
