Re: password... handling when connecting from windows box mail client

I'm not familiar with the "evolution" mail client. However, I would check the account settings in "Thunderbird" and compare them to the "Evolution" settings.

From Thunderbird click "Tools" -> "Account Settings" -> "Server setttings" for your email account. Check the Server Name, User Name, Port, and Security settings. Try comparing them to the ones in your "evolution" client.

I hope this helps.
