My 2 cents:
Stop using Evolution and switch over to Thunderbird. I did it 4 months 
ago and has had no problems with my mail (I use pop via dovecot) since. 
Evo was stable for several years but since last year "improvements" has 
made it highly unreliable. I have used it in Fedora and since I switched 
to Ubuntu (this year) until July in that OS. The calendar plugin makes 
Thunderbird equal to Evolution. But it just my opinion.
