Bit of a tangent but: I don't suppose you tried thunderbird or another 
client?  I stopped using Evolution outright a few years ago because its 
IMAP sync was dangerously broken. It deleted important emails, etc. I 
also had problems getting it to work with SMTP auth in a M$ Exchange 

I've always had high hopes for it but it has gone through too many flaky 
phases for my taste.
