Mail is not sent

There can be several reasons why emails are not sent:

  • Invalid email address. Check if all the addresses listed as mail recipients are correct. If the message contains a wrong or invalid email address, the message will not be sent.

  • Incorrect SMTP settings. Verify if the settings used for outgoing messages are correct. Using the incorrect server address or authentication method may prevent emails from being sent.

  • Offline status. Evolution may be offline. Check on the Send and Receive button; if it is greyed out, then you are offline. To go online, go to File ▸ Work online. You should now be able to use the Send and Receive button.
