  2. Go to Edit|Preferences and make sure your email account is:

    a. Present
    b. Enabled

    From that screenshot, you don't appear to have one.
  3. Have you tried asking on the GNOME forums? I run linux too, but use mozilla thunderbird for emails, so can't help I'm afraid.

    Save and quit your text editor - et voila! job jobbed!
