    Default Evolution doesn't clear server

    I am running Evolution with 11.1 on Gnome.
    There are two problems with Evolution.
    First, whenever I download emails, the server is not cleared (I use Virgin). I know this, because I accessed my account via a different PC and it downloaded all the emails I had already downloaded via Evolution!!! Any idea of how I can fix that?
    Secondly, Evolution doesn't automatically search for emails upon opening. Why not?
    Checked this forum for fixes without success.

    Check the receiving options for that account. Check or uncheck "Leave Messages on Server." You can't do this with an IMAP account.

    Is it set to download messages automatically at regular intervals?

    Well done Chief, you were right on both counts! Messages no longer saved on server, but how can I make Evolution automatically look for mail when opened, rather than having to be prompted? Current setting is to look for new mail every 10 minutes, which suits me fine. It is just that in 10.1, you opened Evolution and it checked mail for you, which would be useful to have again!

    If I have it set to check for new messages every x minutes, it also checks when opening Evolution email. What version do you have, I have 2.24.4.

    Version 2.24.1.1
    It came as part of the 11.1 download.

    Try adding the Gnome stable repo and updating evolution through that.

    Index of /repositories/GNOME:/STABLE:/2.24/openSUSE_11.1

    I would love to, but haven't a clue how to do it. Could you talk me through it on the forum?

    Open a terminal and enter (as root):

    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/GNOME:/STABLE:/2.24/openSUSE_11.1/ Gnome:Stable
    zypper ref -r Gnome:Stable
    zypper up -r Gnome:Stable -t package evolution

    I do that and get a lot of text and then the following question:
    Do you want to reject the key, trust temporarily, or trust always? [R/t/a/?]:
    I assume my answer is a, but if I key in just a it tells me the answer is "invalid"
    What have I done wrong

    Since you're quite new to this, do this via Yast - Software - Software Management. In there, click Configuration - Repositories. You will enter the repo-manager. If mentioned repo is not there yet, add it by clicking Add - leave 'Enter URL' option checked, paste URL below in URL-line, Next, Next, OK. Question about the key, answer Yes, import the key. Back in the software installer, search for 'evolution', tick the package to upgrade it, Accept, done.
