You bring up some interesting and valid questions.  I've checked and
double....   even triple checked the accounts and they are all identical
except the actual eMail address and passwords.

You'd mentioned the server....    being "fully qualified.  It's my
domain which I have with Network Solutions.  It's always worked great
until now....   that is, changing from T-Bird on Windows to Evolution on

Strangely, I have 17 addresses and this one is the only one which gets
this "error."  There are three others which have other problems that I'm
working on resolving....   all because they are all going through  I have four that go through there and only this one
(ragweed) hangs up with an error.

All these addresses are on the same domain.... with  Only four are having problems.  One is universal
and won't work at all...   the other three are intermittant so I think
it's on Associate's end.

Could only one have this problem and 13 others have no problems at all
and work great??  My ubuntu address (used for this list only) is on the
same domain/server, and same identical settings, and is working great.

So you think it's a bug???   Maybe if I sprinkle some boric acid on the
system....   <GRIN>
