Description Jonathan Slavin 2007-12-18 21:42:40 EST

Description of problem:
When I try to send e-mail evolution just sits there -- dialog box comes up but no progress is made until it times out.  I'm using the same configuration for the server (SMTP) that worked with Fedora Core 6.  In /var/log/messages I see:

Dec 18 21:12:43 localhost gnome-keyring-daemon[2364]: Credentials byte was not nul

with repeats as often as I try sending e-mail.  Receiving e-mail works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start evolution
2.create e-mail message
3.click send/receive

Actual Results:
dialog box comes up; any e-mail on the pop server is downloaded; nothing happens with sending -- no progress bar motion -- until it times out

Expected Results:
messages should have been sent

Additional info:
as noted above, it would seem this is a problem with gnome-keyring and its interaction with evolution.  Apparently authentication is not happening.

I was having a similar problem; the fix in Bug 376691 resolved it.
Comment 2 Jonathan Slavin 2008-01-02 10:27:56 EST
This has turned out to be a problem only for re-directed e-mail (i.e. mail sent
via Message -> Forward As... -> Redirect.  I can send other mail just fine.

Sending redirected mail works fine for me with Evolution 2.22.0.
