Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 215009
Evolution generally ignores proxy settings
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:48 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: I am using evolution with evolution-connector to get mail from
an OWA server. My Internet access is exclusively through a proxy (I have a local
ntlmaps proxy that contacts the actual proxy, which most Linux applications
can't talk to.) All images appear in as red x-es if the messages reside in local
folders. Occasionally, I notice an image that correctly downloads if the message
is residing on the Exchange Server.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up proxies in System>Preferences>Network Proxy. For good measure set up a
global environment variable (/etc/profile.d/proxy.sh). For good measure, install
gconf-editor to verify that the settings are known to Gnome.
2. Make sure that Email Properties (HTML mail) has "Always download images from
the Internet" checked.
3. Write a rule to move a newsletter in HTML to a local directory.
4. Try to read the message from the local directory.
Actual results: The status bar indicates attempts to download the message, but
all images are replaced by red x-es.
Expected results: Successful downloading of the images.
Additional info: I had the same problem in FC5, but never reported it. (I
switched to Evolution very late in the cycle -- I had been using Outlook under
Crossover Office before, as my organization had no OWA at the time.)
Reassigning to gtkhtml3.
Opened an upstream bug:
Closing here since this has already been moved upstream.
