Created attachment 864407 [details]
Wireshark communication

Description of problem:
For reason beyond this report sending to google mail is blocked by a firewall. 

Evolution is incapably of realizing this in a timely manner. In that time (minutes rater than seconds) it is not possible to close evolution, logoff or stop the computer. 

In the attached wireshark capture it is visible that retransmissions occur. Observe however that after the last retransmission is send, still a couple of minutes go by before evolution realizes the connectivity problem and reports an error. During that time it is not possible to cancel the transmission. The latter is reported in another bug report.

Thanks for a bug report. There is not much difference between the two cases (this and yours bug #1066266) from my point of view, both are about being unable to cancel pending network operations when it operates on a "zombie" socket (it's waiting for a network timeout actually). Let's deal with this in one bug report only.

No problem. I appologize for the noise. Sometimes it really isn't easy to find out were to put bug reports
