Is it possible Evo simply isn't getting the mails from that account (the
one mentioned that is unfiltered)?  It could be a corrupt message
hanging the queue on that account and Evo isn't letting you know it's
not actually getting mail from it.

Typically, I log into mail from the command line when I suspect that,
but setting up Tbird as a test (and leaving the messages on the server
if you don't want to leave them in TBird) would work just as well.
