Description Suzanne Hillman 2005-12-07 16:29:56 EST
Description of problem:
Created a Vfolder, which created a corresponding 'Unmatched' vfolder at the same
time. When I deleted the one I created, the Unmatched one remained, and cannot
be deleted or edited in anyway. 

If I look at its properties, I get: 

"Cannot edit vFolder "vfolder:/home/testing/.evolution/mail/vfolder#UNMATCHED"
as it does not exist.

This folder may have been added implictly, go to the virtual folder editor to
add it explictly, if required."

If this is, as I suspect, intentional, it should either not allow you to edit
it's properties, or not give such a strange error. (yes, I realize that it was
added implicitly, but most users would have no idea what that means)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
evolution-2.0.2-25

How reproducible:
Seems to only create the Unmatched Vfolder the first time you create a Vfolder.
Comment 1 Suzanne Hillman 2005-12-07 16:38:05 EST
If there are no vfolders left, it might be good to make Unmatched go away, so as
to reduce confusion.
Comment 2 Dave Malcolm 2005-12-08 00:46:20 EST
The dubious Properties behaviour on that vfolder looks like a dup of bug 141548;
there's a patch for that available (which made it into FC3)
Comment 3 Suzanne Hillman 2005-12-08 09:44:35 EST
Uh... the bug you pointed to in the previous comment doesn't actually look even
vaguely related. *confused*
Comment 4 Dave Malcolm 2005-12-08 11:31:35 EST
Sorry, typo, should have been bug 141458
Comment 5 Suzanne Hillman 2005-12-08 16:37:16 EST
Yeah, that looks like the same thing. 

Should I make a different bug for the fact that the Unmatched sticks around when
there are no other Vfolders left, then?
Comment 7 Dave Malcolm 2005-12-20 18:56:41 EST
Re comment 5: yes, please open this as a separate bug
Comment 8 Suzanne Hillman 2005-12-21 10:06:23 EST
Re: commment 5, see bug 176330
Comment 9 Dave Malcolm 2005-12-22 13:22:19 EST
Renaming to better characterize remaining part of bug (since original title
referred to the problem that's now bug 176330)
Comment 11 Matthew Barnes 2008-02-03 02:31:41 EST
Evolution 2.0.2 is only being updated for security issues.  Closing as WONTFIX.
