IMAP and IMAP_rev1 not reading mail account
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:10 EST
Description of problem:
I'm unable to access my mail accounts via IMAP or IMAP_rev1 anymore. Versions
of evolution before the version below worked fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Very (every time)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to access a mail account using IMAP or IMAP_rev1.
The outcomes are slightly different in terms of what feedback you receive, but
neither option is able to open an IMAP type mail box.
IMAP box is open and able to be used.
I've been using IMAP_rev1 since it first appeared in evolution and this is the
first time I've had problems with is actually opening the mail account.
"Evolution 2.3.6 has some serious IMAP bugs, so be very careful if you are using it.
The major one concerns deleting and perhaps moving folders - it will go too far
and delete too much, e.g. including the parent folder.
A more minor one is that if you edit or create an imap account it wont connect
The best workaround at present would be not to upgrade to 2.3.6 if you use IMAP.
This only affects IMAP."
I've built 188.8.131.52 into rawhide (though I've been experiencing problems with
nested folder with that). Does 184.108.40.206 work any better for you?
That was maybe a little too brief.
I still can't even connect.
Cannot reproduce this problem using evolution-220.127.116.11-2.fc6, so resolving as
CURRENTRELEASE. Feel free to re-open this bug if you still encounter the same
problem in Fedora Core 6.
