It's just Evo; every time I start it, it says more or less "the
application 'evolution' wants to access the GPG keyring but it is
locked." I have looked a good few times at the Evo preferences but I
cannot see any way to disable this, so, Vinu, please tell me
specifically how to do it.

Also, I have gone and deleted the Evo applet from the Gnome panel, and
so I am not getting new email notifications (except for a momentary
balloon). I would like to put the applet back, but it isn't listed in
'add/remove from panel.' Can anyone tell me how?
