  1. Evolution Passwords not accepted on startup.

    Ever since I migrated my Feisty Fawn over to Gutsy Gibbon last
    weekend, I have noticed a rather strange behaviour in
    Evolution.

    When I migrated, I restored a copy of my home directory
    from an external drive to the correct place and was able
    to recover all of my contacts, scheudles, tasks etc. However
    when Evolution starts up, it prompts me for a password, which
    I enter and it does not accept. However, doing a Send/Receive
    does work and does not prompt me for a password, which is
    what it should do as I have set up my preferences to remember
    my passwords. I have gone so far as to delete my accounts
    and re-add them thinking that that might eliminate the
    annoyance, but it does not. Are there any other steps
    which I can take to remove this dialogue from starting
    up on Evolution.

    Thanks

    I have exactly this issue too. I have just learnt to live with it.

    FWIW, I've filed it with the Evolution developers and the ubuntu
    distro team.

    I had the same Problem too. A workaround is to create a new profile,
    then import the emails into this archive.
