Thread: evaloution and an interesting fact

  1. #1

    Default evaloution and an interesting fact

    In evoloution I can recieve email from hotmail just fine. but sending always times out. How do I fix this?

    Also an interesting fact about gnome 3. for those of you on a netbook youll notice you have the blue/black bars and window decorations. if you have, plug your netbook into a monitor with at least 1024 display.....notice how it all changes to default? that beautiful grey?

    To check, have you configured SMTP settings correctly. Using the right type of encryption (I believe hotmail requires this - have not used in years) using username/password combo.

    Port 587
    Using SSL/TLS
    Req username/password

    how do you change the ports? I dont see that any where in the editing of my account? I can get (as I have said) emails - But i can't send. and sending is on port 25. other then that everything is fine

    when you set up the sending information, just click on "test server capabilities" and Evolution should (normally) change the port settings automatically, based on the information it got from the server.

    Hope this works (I have yahoo and googlemail and it always worked) and helps

    So there is no way to manually configure the ports? That sounds dumb to me

    Hi
    You just need to set the SSL encryption

    gmail uses the same setup and the above works fine with Evolution 3.0.

    what happens when you choose TLS as encryption method? It maybe sounds strange and please dont ask me why, but with TLS, Evolution uses different ports. I remember that because I read a similar thread some days ago in the ubuntuforums.

    can you try that? Just choose TLS and click "check for supportted types" and try it again...

    hmm have you tried this: Ubuntu Forums - View Single Post - Evolution: How to Change Email Port Address

    just add the port number after the server. Example: smtp.hotmail.com:25

    this is what I found out, the method to change portnumbers in Evolution
