Evolution Send/Receive Icon Grayed Out


Evolution is a very popular GNOME email client for Linux. It's user interface is very similar to Microsoft Outlook, making it easy for users of Outlook to migrate.
Just like Outlook, Evolution has a Send/Receive icon in it's icon toolbar.

Sometimes, the Send/Receive icon is grayed out, perhaps because we started evolution before we had a network connection. This situation is somewhat common in laptops, when Evolution is fired before obtaining a WIFI connection.

It may not be intuitive how to enable the Send/Receive icon, well, fortunately it is very simple, all that is needed is to go to File->Work Online, and the Send/Receive icon will be enabled.
