Description of problem:
When connected through my company's VPN, when I try to delete the first file of a session, it takes several minutes to complete the operation during which time evolution is unresponsive. Subsequent deletes are fast. I don't know why it's related to going through the VPN connection, but when I do the same thing from work, it works fine. The VPN connection is quite responsive during the time that evolution is hung. In fact, I can use a web browser evolution interface to delete a different file while evolution is hung. This problem is not new with fc6... it happened in fc5 too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start evoltion with an exchange account accessed through a pptp vpm connection
2.Open an exchange folder and delete a file
It takes several minutes to delete the first file.
It should be as fast as deleting it through the web interface.
I don't know if this is related or a different bug, but sometimes when I click
send/receive, the send/receive mail window pops up and says it is waiting on the
exchange for a really long time (forever?). Again, this only happens through my
VPN connection and again the web interface to the exchange server is perfectly
responsive during this period. If I cancel, the send/receive mail window, I
receive new emails but all sent emails stay in my outbox until I force-shutdown
evolution and restart it.
This happens not only through VPN, but when I specify my comany's webmail page
as the "OWA URL" (eg: http://webmail.somecomany.com/exchange/). It also seems
to happen in evolution 2.8 under Ubuntu 6.10. It doesn't happen when I am at
work but it always happens when I remotely access my work email either through
VPN or the external webmail address.
Is this problem still present on Fedora 8 Test 2 or later?
I will test with f8t3 or f8. The problem is actually better for me right now
under f7, but I'm not sure if this is due to a change in evolution or a cleaned
up inbox. I think the delay might scale with the number of messages in the
The delay sounds like a socket timeout.

I think the problem is still there in f8t3. I just deleted two files from my
exchange inbox... the first one took about 10 seconds, the second one about 1.
As I said in comment #4, I think the first deletion takes a time that scales
with the number of messages in the inbox. When I reported the problem, I had ~
1 year worth of emails... now I have about 2 months worth.
Okay, thanks for the info.
Significant performance improvements were made in Fedora 9, and I believe this
should be addressed now. Can you please confirm?
