Description of problem:
When I go to check my mail, I noticed that sometimes the checking process just
stops. The net activity light on my router is dark, and nothing is happening in
Evolution. When this happens, I go to check my email via Yahoo! Mail, and every
time, there is an attachment with at least one of my pieces of mail. When there
is mail without attachments, everything works fine. Any suggestions on how I can
debug the mail-check process to see what's going on?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure I have an email with an attachment (maybe send myself an email with
a small text file attached)
2. Check email via Evolution
3. Wait.........

Actual Results:  The checking process stalls, though I can cancel it and return
to normal functionality within Evolution

Expected Results:  Should simply get the email

Change repoducibility to: sometimes. Just got it to work, but I have seen this
several times in the past.

I haven't seen this -- to debug the traffic, follow the instructions at

More information on what happens when it hangs is definitely needed to say what
the problem is.
