Evolution Problem in Debian 6.0

I just finished installing Debian 6.0 (code named Squeeze). The graphical install failed, so I tried the text install which worked.
However, I had problems with Evolution. The “send/recieve” was greyed out, as well as the “File->Work Online”.
My problem was fixed by editing the below
/etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf:

[main]
plugins=ifupdown,keyfile

[ifupdown]
managed=false

To be:

[main]
plugins=ifupdown,keyfile

[ifupdown]
managed=true

But to change the file you need to be root. In the terminal type:

su –
sudo nautilus

Then you can use Nautilus to browse to the file and open it in gedit.
