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: 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.create e-mail message
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
messages should have been sent
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.
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.
