I was half asleep when I wrote this.  The account in question is a gmail
account.  I logged into gmail directly and checked and there are over a
dozen emails sitting in the account that haven't shown up in Evolution.
I don't have delete once downloaded selected in Evolution, so the emails
stay in the gmail account even after they are downloaded.

So either Evolution isn't downloading the emails from that account or it
is throwing them away.     How do I troubleshoot this ?
