Works for me; what mail transport is this with?

Can you obtain a backtrace?
Comment 2 Dave Malcolm 2005-06-17 20:27:28 EDT
(I was testing with evolution-2.0.2-8 and the Exchange connector, though)
Comment 3 Taco Scargo 2005-06-19 11:04:27 EDT
I am using evolution-2.0.2-16 and using smtp as mail transport.

How do I 'obtain a backtrace' ?
Comment 5 Dave Malcolm 2005-06-24 17:43:22 EDT
Information on obtaining a backtrace can be found here (this page applies to
Fedora, but is almost entirely applicable to RHEL):

Backtrace of crashing evolution

Please note I was not able to copy the third line after "Thread 1" (so the line
that starts with in=0xc78380). I had to manually type it in. Maybe a hidden
character ???
Comment 7 Taco Scargo 2005-08-26 03:30:39 EDT
Additional info: when clicking forward the application crashes as well, but this
time immediately. The backtrace was generated by clicking the forward button in
the toolbar.
