I haven't tried that, and would prefer not to for security reasons.
However my suspicions have focussed more on possible LDAP problems. Note
that Evo can consult LDAP when you least expect it, e.g. if you turn on
the Preference setting to not check for Junk if the sender is in your
address book, and don't tell it to look only at *local* address books,
it will do LDAP lookups every time it fetches mail. This used to cause
me endless grief till I turned it off.
