[RHEL5] Long waiting on sendmail transfer completion
Last modified: 2008-06-10 05:40:49 EDT
Description of problem:
All my accounts are sending email through local sendmail (except, that it is
postfix, but it shouldn't matter I hope). Sometimes when running Send/Receive
(not sure with the back-translation to English, I just press F9) Evolution just
stays on "Waiting on Sendmail..." for a long time even when no messages are
supposed to be sent at all, which is ridiculous.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
from time to time
Steps to Reproduce:
1.press F9 to Send/Receive
evolution stalls on "Waiting for Sendmail..."
there should be no waiting on local sendmail, especially when no messages are
To make it even better, it seems that when Evo decides to never finish waiting
on sendmail, it also stops sending any messages whatsoever (without making any
noise about that). The only help is then evolution --force-shutdown (which
should IMHO replace File/Exit in command menu; I am rarely able to leave Evo in
the ordinary way ;-)).
Maybe related to http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=383618 ???
Just to note that I don't use RHEL5 regularly (just have it in kvm guest) and I
haven't encountered this bug with F7.
RHEL 5.2 will re-base Evolution from version 2.8.0 to version 2.12.3.
Can you please test whether this bug is still present in RHEL 5.2?
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question?
Matej, you are the reporter. :)
Shut, I AM the reporter. No, I am afraid, I cannot reproduce it right now. My
kvm is now broken, and I don't use RHEL anywhere in the real use.
Committing INSUFFICIENT_DATA suicide.
