    Are you using IMAP or POP3?

    In either case you set up the account under Edit->Preferences->Mail Accounts. I'm not sure how POP3 is handled - I presume they will download directly into your local folders when you hit the appropriate button (i.e. double click inbox or Send/Receive). With IMAP when the account is created it sets up another set of folders, in the side panel, under the name you gave - it defaults to the email address, and you read the mail on the server. To store it locally you can select the messages and either cut and paste to the local folders or drag and drop.

    It is NOT important to me anymore. Because the email plan offered by Godaddy is without IMAP protocol support. If I couldn't sort out the problem I'll use Thunderbird instead. My goal to run Evolution is to check whether it'll download the Sendbox on POP3 protocol. Now I undstand it is impossible.

    To store it locally you can select the messages and either cut and paste to the local folders or drag and drop.
    Could you please explain in more detail, how to drag an email on the Sendbox of a webmail and to drop it on the Outbox of Local Folder on Evolution?

    Thanks

    That's only for IMAP. With POP3 you download to the local folders by default. If webmail is all that is available then downloading your email will be specific to the provider. I'm pretty sure that godaddy offers POP3 and you'll need to look up the mail server address for receiving and some public sendmail address for sending - they may provide that as well.

    Incoming POP3
    Server hostname pop.secureserver.net

    Outgoing SMTP
    Server hostname smtpout.secureserver.net
