Description of problem:
The total number of unread mails in folders don't update until I
actually click on a folder. This means to find out if I have new mail
I have to click on every folder, wait a second to see if the total
updates, move on to the next folder etc..
I told evo to check for new mail every minute, but it seems that it
doesn't actually do anything.
My mail is delivered by fetchmail, as I do filtering into two groups
(stuff I read with mutt, stuff I read with evo).
Evo is configured to just read mail as mbox spools from my homedir.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See description
Actual Results: nothing happens until you click folders, it appears I
have no mail.
Expected Results: Every minute, rescan the folders. Better yet, use
directory notification and only update those folders which changed.
Ironically, the moving-between-each-folder-to-see-if-theres-new-mail
was the reason I moved from mutt -> evolution.
Talk to alexl about how ... "well" using dnotify works :(
If you want this, use evolution to actually deliver your mail to your
mboxes, not fetchmail.
There's also an upstream bug about this (I've seen it mentioned on the
evolution user's list, but don't remember the bug # off hand)
