Description Carl Brune 2013-01-20 03:59:29 UTC
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0 Build Identifier: I am attempting to read a local mbox spool mail file (/var/spool/mail/username) using evolution. I have created an account in evolution to receive email in this format. Upon opening this "Inbox" an error "Summary and folder mismatch, even after a sync". Evolution is able to extract the From/Subject/Date to make the tabular summary, but it is not possible to view the messages. The mbox spool mail file in question only contains email generated by local cron jobs. I can read it fine with the command line "mail" command. I have tried putting the file other places such as /home/username and also using other mbox files which I know to be not corrupted. The problem persists. I used this approach a few years ago with fc10 with no problems. If I run evolution from a terminal, I see the following warnings/errors: (evolution:435): camel-local-provider-WARNING **: Didn't get the next message where I expected (5387) got 0 instead (evolution:435): camel-WARNING **: CamelSpoolStore::get_folder_sync() set its GError but then reported success (evolution:435): camel-WARNING **: Error message was: Summary and folder mismatch, even after a sync Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. create account to read mbox spool mail file 2. attempt to open corresponding inbox Actual Results: Folder fails to open, messages cannot be viewed. Expected Results: Folder should be opened w/o errors, and messages should be readable.
