Description of problem:
Even after changing the settings to automatically load images in HTML
mail the images are not properly loaded. It normally loads some of
the images and then stops. One can then close the EMail and open it
again and some more of the images will load.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open up any EMail that has several images.
2. Some of the images will load automatically.
3. Close the EMail.
4. More of the images will load. Sometimes this will load the rest of
them, but not always.
5. Close the EMail.
6. Open the EMail again to load more images, etc.....
Actual Results: Each time more images will open. Most of the time,
the second iteration will load all the images.
Expected Results: The first time one opens up an EMail it should load
all the images.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
I seem to have a related problem in FC6. I am using the Exchange connector and
access the Internet through a proxy. I initially had terrible problems because
Evolution wouldn't try to access the OWA server through the proxy, which I
resolved by nagging an administrator to put an OWA server in our local network.
Anyway, the problem, as it manifests itself on my system, is that all the images
are simply displayed as little red x's. I presume that this means that Evolution
is ignoring the proxy, which is declared in the Gnome Proxy dialog, in Firefox,
and in the environment. However, today, I noticed that a message that was
sitting in the Inbox on the server did display the images, and only the messages
that were moved to the local mbox were actually affected by the bug. The
Internet connection is obviously active, as I am sending this message over the
The distribution against which this bug was reported is no longer supported,
could you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently
supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue
turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report. If
after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this
bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.
Thanks in advance.
I have the same problem in Fedora 7, evolution version 2.10.3-2.fc7. This is
also reported as bug #215009 (from where it was passed upstream and was never
accepted or acknowledged). I must access the Internet through a Microsoft Proxy
that requires a weird communication format. I use ntlmaps 0.9.9 as a local proxy
to contact the MS proxy. All other applications properly use the proxy and have
I looked through evolution and saw that it uses settings from
/system/http_proxy, not from /system/proxy (look with gconf-editor). It also
depends on the image url, if it starts with http(s) or not. Can you check what
happened with the image URL when you moved image to local folder (probably
nothing) and what is that url? Thanks in advance.
I'm sorry, I'm odd, see upstream bug  for proxy issue.
Can you reproduce the initial issue on Fedora 8, please?
The proxy issue from upstream bug is in 2.12.3 in Fedora 8.
The initial issue is still opened, so setting NEEDINFO.
After the last update to evolution, my problem was miraculously resolved. As I
don't have the problem any more, as far as I am concerned, this could be closed.
Thanks for responding. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
