Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-08-19 18:29:44 EDT
Last week the certificate for mail.boston.redhat.com expired.

Every since then when I try to use evolution a dialog pops up that says

Error while Scanning folders in "IMAP server mail.boston.redhat.com".

Server unexpectedly disconnected: Input/output error

I tried moving my .evolution folder out of the way and doing 

gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/evolution

but after resetting up my account it still happens. Thunderbird works okay.

Note, I don't know if the certificate expiry is related or coincidence.

Are you seeing any relevant-looking output on the terminal?
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-08-20 11:49:28 EDT

rpm -q evolution revealed it wasn't installed...

My system was hosed, reinstalling evolution fixed the problem.
