- Status changed from New to In Progress
There was definitely change on AOL side. I manually checked firstname.lastname@example.org mailbox, and there is note about change, which will begin after 7.11. Test stopped working 9.11.
AOL is committed to protecting the privacy and security of our customers. This is why we're writing to inform you that your current third party email application is not using the latest, secure mail connection settings.

According to new AOL documentation port 993 should be used for connection, but our test use auto configuration based on domain aim.com. Auto configuration is downloaded from Gnome servers, but it still serves old data https://api.gnome.org/evolution/autoconfig/1.1/aim.com.
I compared(and manually tested) it with Mozilla Thunderbid https://autoconfig.thunderbird.net/v1.1/aim.com .
Mozilla runs fine and their data doesn't contain any reference to port 143.

Fix created and submitted https://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst-distri-opensuse/pull/3943
It tries configure aim.com, if it fails (hang on folder scanning), test will terminate evolution and try another email provider.

Upstream just fixed their bug and evolution_smoke works as before: http://10.100.12.105/tests/627#step/evolution_smoke/12
But I don't want throw away fix which I did, because it is failover for not responding AOL anyway.
I will just change soft-failure message to contain network error.
Or should I cancel my pull/merge requests?
