Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 245145
Cannot read local mail spool
Last modified: 2018-04-11 02:57:23 EDT
Description of problem:
In gconf setting /apps/evolution/mail/accounts for the account reading from the
local /var/mail/<logname> only the name of the directory could be set. Of
course, that makes evolution unhappy because /var/mail is not a mbox. When
fixing this value with gconf-editor evolution works again correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.just upgrade to FC7
evolution cannot read from /var/mail/<logname> and it is not possible to fix the
setting through GUI.
Actually, it seems to me silly, that the folder is settable at all --
/var/mail/logname should be automatic, even more when there is a special type of
account for reading from the local spool. For anybody who is so weird, that it
doesn't have local mailspool there, it is so weird, that symlink should be
perhaps related to http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=352346 ?
Correct. Moving this upstream to the bug Andre pointed out.
