Bug Description

After resume from suspend, evolution PIM will remain "offline" on my desktop (My system: ubuntu 16.10, gnome desktop) in about half of the occurencies. Switching it "online" manually works. The machine itself reconnects to the web without any trouble.

Still the case with zesty.

Somehow related:
When booting the system, if I do not log in immediately, I get a
"Failed to lookup credentials: Failed to get password from GOA: timeout" message.

I'd like a auto-reconnect feature at evolution. It could be configurable, in the case of timeout it could - according to user's settings
- either keep trying
- or prompt to the user "what shall I do"
- or just throw an error message

There are some somehow related bug reports, eg

but I guess, a cheap, but effective hack would be to make evolution just a little more tolerant against net connection loss by trying to autoconnect more patiently.
