Lately, Evolution has had some issues talking to my gmail account:
The error message I get is fairly vague: "Failed to refresh folder $account: INBOX
The reported error was: “You must be online to complete this operation”.
Evolution most definitely is online. The connectivity icon at the lower left corner of the window tells me I am online, and receiving mail from my other accounts works fine (IMAP and Exchange), so I am going to make the bold claim that I am actually online.
I checked Evolution’s preferences, set “Method to detect online state” to “Always online”, disabled the proxy. That did not help.
Trying to open a mail message gives me the error message “Message is not available in offline mode”. Like I said, I am not in offline mode.
Can somebody shed some light on this problem or tell me where to look?
I don’t use evolution I use pop3 with t-bird for my gmail account before doing debugging evolution check the server settings these are my t-bird pop3 gmail settings (they use to work in outlook express years ago)
