It then asks for a password (which is already filled in as I have the
password saved. If I say OK, (whether or not I keep the filled-in
password or retype it) it just keeps firing that error.

But if I press cancel, and then choose "Work Online" from the file menu,
it connects, logs in, and proceeds to work fine. Next time I run
evolution, the same problem happens again.

I have the same problem, but I figured it was because I'm running
NetworkManager and it's currently disabled as I have a static
configuration in /etc/network/interfaces.

Are you running NetworkManager too?

I really don't know. I just installed using the business card ISO for
etch (installer RC1) and I set up static networking using the
curses-based installer. I didn't need to change anything once
everything was installed, my network config stayed static.

If it helps, the network connection applet in Gnome doesn't detect any
interfaces (but my user can run ifconfig)

What I find odd, if you look closely at the error: "Error sending
username: " with no username attached. Yet, on the next line down
"Please enter the POP password for draeath@gmail.com ..." showing that
there is indeed a username to be sent.
