Description Brem BELGUEBLI 2015-12-04 17:40:35 EST
Description of problem:
some received emails are unreadable. Using gmail as backend.
The only content I see is a sort of hash (a base64 hash maybe) it happens randomly in the sense that it is not a based on the sender or any other obvious pattern.
Moreover, when doing a reply on these emails, it doesn't even show the original sender in the To: field The only workaround I found is to move these emails to another folder and then they can be read.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
Gnome 3.18.2

How reproducible: 
It happens randomly, hard to reproduce.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Expected results:

Thanks for a bug report. I think this is a variant of an upstream bug
report [1]. It can strike back in various ways. There was an upstream release with 3.18.3 of the evolution core packages, which will be in updates-testing soon (I guess within a day or two). I suggest to try with that version.

Hello Milan,

I don't see the relation with bug [1] you provided, but I'll try 3.18.3 once it is in updates.

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 08:58:48 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2016-12-20 11:38:29 EST
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
