Description Anthony Messina 2007-03-15 17:23:34 EDT
Description of problem:
After an yum update upgrade to evolution-2.8.3-1.fc6, Evolution no longer will
empty trash from IMAP folders when I select "File >> Empty Trash"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
evolution-2.8.3-1.fc6

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mark a message as deleted in an IMAP folder
2. Go to "File >> Empty Trash"
  
Actual results:
See that the message still exists in both the IMAP folder and Evolution's
special Trash folder.

I have confirmed that the message is marked as deleted by logging into the same
mail account via SquirrelMail and seeing the message marked for deletion.

Expected results:
Evolution will expunge IMAP folders when "File >> Empty Trash" is chosen.

Additional info:
I also have the option set to "Empty Trash on Exit", which also does not work.

I'm not sure if the following is useful, but here's the output from "evolution
--component=mail --debug"

More information:

There is a weird circumstance in which using the "File >> Empty Trash" command
works: if I am not currently viewing my INBOX, and I am in another folder, it
works, whether or not the folder I am in has any messages to be expunged.
Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-02 23:27:33 EDT
Odd, but thanks for the information.  Those CRITICAL warnings could very well be
related to the problem.  Just to try to isolate the source of those warnings,
can I have you trying starting Evolution from a terminal, then immediately quit
(taking no other action).  I'm curious whether those same warnings show up.
Comment 3 Anthony Messina 2007-04-03 18:40:02 EDT
Not being able to emply the trash was enough of a problem that I switched back
to Thunderbird for IMAP  for now.  I will re-add my account in Evo and see what
happens.

I can also say that when I was having the problem in the bug report, I was also
using Evo with an MS Exchange account -- that had problems as well; it wouldn't
remove messages that were deleted, etc.

Now that I have removed the IMAP account and have only the MS Exchange account,
the MS Exchange account functions perfectly.

It seems like having both an IMAP and MS Exchange account was a bit much for
Evo, but then, that seems unreasonable to me.

Using FC7 and KMail.  I no longer use Evolution.
