Description Alan Cox 2003-08-12 21:11:02 UTC
Description of problem:
Evolution fails to regenerate folder filters properly in some cases

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a vfolder of your main received that is mail that is unread
2. View this folder
3. Read some messages
4. Hit ctrl-Y to redo the filters
Actual results:

Nothing happens

Expected results:

Read messages vanish as per 1.2

Select-all, ctrl-y turns them to ruled through, but wont remove them from the
view even if you refresh that.

I'm pretty sure they'll only vanish if you select "Hide read messages" which
isn't  a toggle-able option, but something you select each time you want to do
it (otherwise, it's weird in that you start to read a message and it vanishes
before you finish reading it).  

Or are you seeing something else and I'm not understanding?

Comment 2 Alan Cox 2003-09-02 23:25:10 UTC
In evolution 1.2 you can "select all messages" "apply filters" in a vfolder and
it updates it. In 1.4 this fails. Thats the problem I'm seeing - and its a
definite reversion in behaviour from correct to nonfunctional.

In my case the vfolder rule for membership is "Not Read || Important", the
filter isn't being reapplied properly when I tell it to

Comment 3 Matt Hansen 2004-04-27 03:58:02 UTC
What's the status on this? I have setup a Vfolder like Alan described
for the fedora mailing lists. Since they can and usually are quite
high volume, I would love to be able to automatically/permanently hide
all read messages in this folder _when I leave_ the Vfolder. 

What is the feasibility of this? This may not be possible, but having
the Ctrl+Y combo "refresh" the message state as Alan described would
be an acceptable alternative. 

Comment 4 Alan Cox 2004-05-21 20:24:18 UTC
I suspect its a case of "when Evolution 2.0 appears".
