In Ubuntu/Gnome under the mail icon in the tray, there are chat, mail, and broadcast. opening the chat logs into your IM accounts and keeps you logged in when closing the main window. But it appears that for the mail (ie evolution), when you open it it logs in and checks mail, but stops checking mail as soon as you close the window. I cannot find the setting to keep checking mail even when the main window is closed. This seems like a basic function and I can't figure out why it isn't the default behavior. How do I keep checking mail when the main window is closed?
Running Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid X64.
