Now when I try to start Evolution it Segfaults.  Here's the terminal

The folders are accessible throught the sever's web based email
interface.  The server is IBM Inotes.

This is reproducible with other imap servers as well. I have tested
with the dovecot-0.99.10-6 imap server on a Fedora Core 1 box.

I'm sorry that this bug has gone for so long without activity.

Are you still able to reproduce this bug?  If so, setting the
environment variable CAMEL_VERBOSE_DEBUG=1 before running evolution
may yield useful information (including the conversation with the IMAP

Are you able to reproduce this bug with a more recent version of
evolution?  evolution-2.0.0 is now available in Rawhide
