Description Xander D Harkness 2004-10-11 04:08:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041008

Description of problem:
Evolution does not show emails in Inbox, though will show mail boxes
that are below inbox and the mail in them.  This version of evolution
shows that it is collecting mail and displays a blank where emails
would be.  Earlier versions of Evolution state "This folder cannot
contain messages".

To correct this I have to remove all evolution settings for the user
and restart gconfd.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open an account that provides Maildir such as Courier or Evolution
(does not seem to happen with Cyrus)
2.Use the account for a couple of days/weeks
3.Evolution will fail to show messages in inbox

Actual Results:  After a variable period of time Evolution will fail
to show email messages in the Inbox

Expected Results:  Evolution should show all messages and sub folders.

What does this say:
gconftool-2 --get /apps/evolution/mail/accounts

(ideally both when it's working, and when it isn't, assuming that
they're different)

I managed to get it working tonight, on both evolution-2.0.1-4 and
evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1.  I unsubscribed to inbox on
evolution-2.0.1-4 and on evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1. I had to
unsubscribe to every mail folder, close evolution and then start
evolution then resubscribe to all.

Output on evolution-1.4.5-7.fdr.0.1. when working is:
No value set for `/apps/evolution/mail/accounts'

I shall add the later evolution in a later post.

Is this problem still present in Fedora Core 6 or later?
