Have you tried sending mail from another [simpler] app (e.g. pine)?

Indeed it might.

No.  Evo will work without any WM.  You just need to make sure all the
dependencies are there.

Okay, sounds like you need to do a portupgrade -fR evolution.  This will
sync all your Evo libraries, and might solve your problem.  It will
definitely solve the missing library issues.  Note, libgmodule-2.0.so.0
is old.  The correct, current version is libgmodule-2.0.so.200.
