I'm trying to set up an IMAP account in Evolution (3.24.6-1.fc26)
that would connect through a network proxy. I've also have other IMAP accounts in
Evolution so I just want this one account to go through a proxy. I thought it would just
be to go to Network Preferences and define a custom proxy, but it doesn't work.
Evolution displays a question mark next to the account. What I did was to define a Socks
Proxy at localhost:9050 and tag this one account to use it. I know that the proxy works
fine, because if I tell Gnome to use it in All Settings -> Network that for example
Firefox uses that proxy.
AFAIK it should be possible to configure a socks proxy in evolution
settings and add all other imap servers you are using to the 'ignore hosts'.
