Sorry for the bombing of questions....  Ok, I set up the evolution
account the way you said, and I ran fetchyahoo through a terminal, and I
noticed that on gkrellm my number of inbox emails was going up and up as
fetchyahoo checked my inbox( I still dont know how or where to check the
gkrellm inbox btw) but nothing was coming in evolution...  Did I miss
something or was I supposed to do something else? Thank you so much, and
again sorry to be such a bother!
