Try using an account that requires changing the mail directory (i.e., you use the account as a normal shell account, and all of the mail should get put into a directory called 'mail'.) Evolution can't handle this--if you change the mail directory it forgets that you have an INBOX. That's not very functional, if you ask me. Somehow KMail, Thunderbird, pine, and even Netscape Messenger 4 can figure this out, not to mention squirrelmail. I've tried Evolution several times over the years, and each time I go back to whatever it was I was using before, because the crashes, freezes and over-complex bugginess just really get to me.
(This most recent trip into Evo-land was with Ubuntu Dapper, Evo 2.6, on both i386 and powerpc)
