Description Nick Strugnell 2003-12-17 11:13:12 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030922

Description of problem:
If an LDAP server is configured as a directory server, evolution tries
to use it to autocomplete email addresses in offline mode. This causes
a delay which hangs the entire UI until the lookup times out.

Looking at the Offline Folders tab in Settings, it appears that
Evolution automatically assumes that anything under 'Other Contacts'
is an offline-available folder.

LDAP contacts folders should be marked as unavailable in offline mode
as IMAP folders are.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure an LDAP server in evolution
2. Take machine off network
3. Go into offline mode (by clicking the connection icon in lower LH
4. Create a new e-mail and start typing a name in the 'To:' field

Actual Results:  UI hangs while LDAP connection is attempted and
eventually times out

Expected Results:  Name should be either resolved from local contacts
folder or unresolved

Additional info:

Could try running a local cacheing LDAP server on laptop and pointing
at  that as workaround
