Fedora :: Evolution Refuses To Connect Localhost IMAP Server

I have a strange problem with evolution in Fedora 14. I run my own mail servers (Postfix and Dovecot) on localhost. This all worked great in F13 but now evolution refuses to connect to the localhost imap server. If I connect from my laptop (also F14) i.e. not from the localhost all works fine and great with evolution. I deleted all the config and started again to no avail. I also created a new user and logged in with this user and I still get the same so looks not to be user config issue.
evolution --debug=evo.debug.txt returns nothing useful.
Dovecot is listening on localhost as I can telnet to the imap port. Also other imap clients like Thunderbird work fine.

CentOS 5 Server :: Named Refuses Connect From Outside Localhost
I have installed bind from the repos and am trying to setup a caching name server. After copying the stock name-cachinging.conf to named.conf, I tweaked named.conf to reflect my LAN:

options {
listen-on port 53 {;; };
listen-on-v6 port 53 { ::1; };

Ubuntu :: Evolution Mail Can't Connect To Gmail IMAP
I'm on a fresh Ubuntu 9.10 x86_64 install and I'm trying to configure Evolution to grab my email from Gmail using IMAP.

For receiving mail my server is set to and my user name is

I'm using SSL and the authentication type is "Password"

If I click the "Check for supported types button, the "Please wait. Querying server for a list of supported authentication mechanisms." window pops up, but it never finishes.

When I try to sync my mail, evolution doesn't ask for my password, and the send and receive mail window displays my account as "Scanning folders in "IMAP server" indefinitely.

Running Evolution from the terminal doesn't seem to print any IMAP related errors only

** (evolution:5565): CRITICAL **: atk_object_set_name: assertion `name != NULL' failed

POP works fine, but that isn't really an option.

Server :: Cant Connect To MYSQL On Localhost
Running MYSQL 5.5.12 and MYSQL Workbench 1:5.2.34 on up-to-date Arch linux Set up MYSQL with root account and password. When running Workbench as user, got error when trying to connect :


Cannot Connect to Database Server Your connection attempt failed for user 'root' from your host to server at Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (111)

1 Check that mysql is running on server

2 Check that mysql is running on port 3306 (note: 3306 is the default, but this can be changed)

3 Check the root has rights to connect to from your address (mysql rights define what clients can connect to the server and from which machines)

4 Make sure you are both providing a password if needed and using the correct password for connecting from the host address you're connecting from

After commenting #skip-networking in my.cnf error changed to :


Cannot Connect to Database Server Your connection attempt failed for user 'root' from your host to server at Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading initial communication packet', system error: 0

1 Check that mysql is running on server

2 Check that mysql is running on port 3306 (note: 3306 is the default, but this can be changed)

3 Check the root has rights to connect to from your address (mysql rights define what clients can connect to the server and from which machines)

4 Make sure you are both providing a password if needed and using the correct password for connecting from the host address you're connecting from

Copying my.cnf to /etc/ and running Workbench as root didn't change anything, i still get the second error The wiki [URl] says to enable MYSQL in /etc/hosts.allow but i didn't do it, i guess it is required only when trying to access MYSQL from remote hosts which i dont.

Server :: Why The Php Mysql_connect() Only Can Connect Localhost MySQL
I used 4 host to establish a high-availability web server system. 2 Load Balancer + 2 Web Server(installed MySQL Server 5.5). 2 MySQL Server used Multi-Master Replication.Used "Amoeba" as MySQL Proxy which direct the write statement to a specific MySQL Server.I can login Amoeba and MySQL Server using MySQL client. I tried query something in XAMMP on Windows XP. It work!

Installed related software:



What I tried:

yum install php php-mysql
yum install php53 php53-mysql

Compiled php 5.3.6 soruce + MySQL 5.5 Server, Client, Shared, Shared-Compact Above software installed on different host. And the phpinfo showing MySQL I doubt something wrong in my php.ini. Used default php configuration.

Ubuntu :: Evolution IMAP IDLE Not Working?
I am using Ubuntu 10.04.I always liked Evolution as a potential email client. I needed was for Evolution to automatically update the server (so if I mark a message as unread, it reflects at the server without having to wait for the 'synchronise every X minutes' to kick in).My email is with GMail. I understand Evolution implemented IMAP IDLE as of 2.30. So I tried this by using a PPA (ppa:jacob/evo230) to update. The update worked and I changed my email to IMAP+ and even checked the �Use idle if the server supports it�. But no auto sync occurs!

Ubuntu :: Evolution: Gmail IMAP Settings?
I've seen a bunch of other posts on this topic but they haven't solved my problem. I just installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.04. Love it so far. Except, I can't figure out how to setup my gmail account in Evolution so that I can see the emails on the server or download them locally. I had it working before both in 8.04 LTS and a flash drive install of UNR 9.10. I really can't figure out why it is so difficult this time.Gmail settings are/were already on IMAP - checked while logged in through browser.In Evolution, I've tried changing the account name, user name (for receiving mail), etc. and different combos of same settings. The receiving mail settings I'm using for IMAP authentication are password and save password. Security is set to SSL.Evolution tries to access the server but never asks for a password. Likely, because something is wrong with my settings. I just don't know what.

Ubuntu :: Setting Up Gmail In Evolution: Imap Or Pop3?
I'm trying to set up my gmail account with Evolution. I am trying to set up a mail client where -

1) All the mails are stored locally, so that I can work offline. When I reconnect, the client (Evolution) syncs with the server - sends emails and updates any changes.

2) All the labels/folder system to be respected and retained.

After struggling with various sites that argued Pop3 and IMAP (numerous blogs and google searches), I came across this conclusion (pls correct them if they are wrong)-

1) Pop3 allows mails to be stored locally, but will not break them up into folders.

2) IMAP will allow the folder system, but will only store the headers of mail on the local server, and the content will be downloaded as per request.

1) Will Pop3 access allow syncing between the local version and the server version? For instance, a mail read in Evolution should be marked as read when I sign into the web-interface as well.(I can always create a filter/rule that replicates gmail filters)

2) Will IMAP allow me to store all mail locally (isn't this exactly what IMAP is not!)? The combination of imap-gmail-evolution was not so successful when I tried it out - too slow!

PS: I would prefer Evolution over Thunderbird so that I can integrate the Calendar. However, if ThunderBird is the easiest solution, then it's fine too...

Red Hat / Fedora :: VSFTPD: Can't Connect From Localhost
I set up a ftp server using VSFTPd. Remote connections are working fine. I can connect then create, rename and delete folders. I can upload files without any issue. BUT, each time i connect directly from the server (with the command "ftp localhost") i can't upload files either delete them. The only thing i can do is create folders. I'm getting error code "553: could not create file" when trying upload files. I triple checked the rights, everything is OK. I disabled SELinux (even if i don't like it). The weirdest thing is everything's working fine from remote host.

Below my vsftpd.conf:

Debian Multimedia :: Evolution IMAP Doesn't Work But Icedove Does
I am having trouble getting evolution to work properly with my imap server. It won't show any messages. Icedove works fine, though. I'd rather use evolution because of the calendar. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. The IMAP server is hosted by network solutions. I have screenshots of both clients. I've blacked out a few things for privacy.

Here are screenshots of evolution as configured:

Ubuntu :: Delete Gmail Msg Using IMAP By Configuring Evolution Client?
I'd like to configure Evolution (or Thunderbird) to delete Gmail messages. When I select messages and hit "Delete", the messages go to my local trash and they loose their Inbox label in Gmail. I would like that in Gmail, they loose their Inbox label and go to [Gmail]/Trash so that they'll be deleted after a month.
Could I configure the "delete" key of my keyboard to move msg to [Gmail]/Trash ? Could I configure another key to move msg to [Gmail]/Trash ?

What other solution ? Because moving to the trash is not convenient, it takes a lot of time without a key shortcut.

Software :: Evolution Problem: Not Retrieving One Particular Email From Imap Account?
An email was sent to my imap account 2 weeks ago. I just discovered that it's still sitting there unopened but for some reason Evolution doesn't retrieve it.I know it's still there because I can ssh in and run pine -- and there it is, still marked "N" in the INBOX.Evolution has been retrieving all my other emails with no apparent problems. Is there any way that I can "force" it to get this item, and do you have any idea as to why one particular email is being excluded when Evolution does Send/Receive?

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Sees Mails In IMAP-account / Evolution Doesn't
As the title says I have an IMAP-account and I want to use it via Evolution. I have the exact same settings on both Evolution and Thunderbird but only Thunderbird sees the mails (new/old), there are 139 messages.Evolution seen none. Nothing. I looked for IMAP-related problems concerning Evolution and one thread suggested something about Inbox-folder and it's location. I don't know if it's the solution, but I didn't find any luck trying different combos in Evolution's options.

Fedora :: Connect To The Localhost At Port 6667 Using Irssi?
I want to use bitlbee-irssi to IM using gtalk.. I have installed bitlbee and edited /etc/bitlbee/bitlbee.conf with

RunMode = ForkDaemon
User = bitlbee
DaemonInterface =
DaemonPort = 6667

Now when I try to connect to the localhost at port 6667 using irssi, i get the following error message saying it cannot connect to localhost port 6667

13:48 -!- Irssi: Looking up localhost
13:48 -!- Irssi: Connecting to localhost [] port 6667
13:48 -!- Irssi: Connection to localhost established
13:48 -!- Error: bind: Permission denied
13:48 -!- Error: listen: Bad file descriptor
13:48 -!- Irssi: Connection lost to localhost

A similar looking error comes up when I try to telnet localhost at 6667. Also, I get a selinux warning saying SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/bitlbee "name_bind" access .How do I check if bitlbee is listening to port 6667? Btw, I am using fedora 13, I have selinux running in enforcing mode and the firewall running. I have set the port 6667 in the other ports tab of "system-config-firewall" (I am hoping that this will open that port).

Server :: Can't Login To Sendmail Server Using Cyrus-imap On Fedora Core
I recently setup an email server on Fedora Core (14). Sendmail is running and I am trying to authenticate from a client pc using imaps. I installed Cyrus-imap and it is running and listening on 993. When I try to login, it doesn't accept authentication even though I verified the user's password is correct. (tested with ssh)Is there something I have to do with Cyrus or on the server to allow connections to email? I have not used Cyrus before. I am attempting to access my mail folders via Sendmail and did not make mailboxes in Cyrus. I did allow imaps through the firewall.
