problem is probably caused by used mail (pop) server in china
my ping to this ip addres:
40 packets transmitted, 40 received, 0% packet loss, time 39039ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 308.577/318.424/544.494/38.269 ms
so -> bigger timeout before try to search delivered message, or use another server. ( maybe configure local service in sut before test ?)
#2 Updated by okurz about 5 years ago
- Subject changed from test fails in evolution_meeting_pop to [userspace][qam] test fails to reach external mail server in evolution_meeting_pop sometimes -> use local server
- Category changed from Bugs in existing tests to Enhancement to existing tests
a local server which is part of the openQA infrastructure itself would be preferrable. I assume a valid workaround is retriggering although this might be done from within the test module and using an email server local to the openQA test would be beneficial.

- Status changed from New to In Progress
I have identified 3 other issues with similar or identical underlying cause and listed them as related tasks.
I also contacted qkzhu, who is assigned on two of these issues, to sync with him about our progress, in order to avoid duplicating work.
