I did a fresh install of Xubuntu 12.10 yesterday and added Evolution 3.6.2 from the Ubuntu Software Center. When I try to configure the account to work with Earthlink, Evolution defaults to IMAP mail and offers no opportunity to change it to POP. Earthlink is POP. Everything I read online mentions a Drop Down Menu for selecting the type of mail account, but if there was one available to me, I would not be posting here.
I deleted Evolution and reinstalled it, but nothing changed. If anyone can advise on how to correct this problem, I will be in your debt.
