LAST QUESTION!! I promise....  I got evolution to read the first 100
messages from my yahoo inbox through fetchyahoo.  And I have set
fetchyahoo checking for new mail every 1 minutes, but when fetchyahoo
tells me, new message it doesnt come up in evolution...  Even when I
press send/receive, nothing happens, it doesnt refresh or get the new
messages in evo.  Now I have been messing with this thing for a bit, no
idea what else to do, is it something in fetchyahoo or evo?  This is the
last little step I need, and its finished!  Thanks so much!
