Public bug reported:

Affects: evolution (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed


I´m using imaps (port 993) to check my email on my home server.
To send emails I use smtp auth.

imaps is set for my account (using tls) but evolution keeps connecting on port 143 (imap).
my firewall denies that.

smtp is set up with smtp auth active but without ssl.

Since sending failed with "relay access denied" and evo didn´t ask for
my passphrase i have sniffed the connection. Evo doesn´t use imaps,
doesn´t even try, neither does evo use smtp auth when sending emails.

Seems that ssl and smtp-auth support is missing. probably problem with
libnspr / libnss?

Installed packages
- evolution                                  2.6.0-0ubuntu3
- evolution-data-server                      1.6.0-0ubuntu1
