Description Robert Peterson 2007-06-25 09:52:57 EDT
Description of problem:
I set up an evolution filter to move all email with recipient
"Linux-Cluster" to a folder called "linux-cluster".  When I hit
okay, it acknowledged the destination folder was "linux-cluster".
Then I tried to apply filters.  It came up with a message:
Error while filtering folder:
Cannot get folder "linux-cluster list": folder does not exist.
(Despite the fact that I chose the folder from the list it presented).
I went to edit folders and it lists the destination folder as
"linux-cluster list".  I tried to edit the filter and change the
destination folder name back to "linux-cluster" but it did the same

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a folder called "linux-cluster" for emails.
2. Subscribe to the external linux-cluster mailing list.
3. Wait for a message to arrive in your in-basket from the list.
4. Right-click on the item and select create a filter.
5. Select based on recipient.
6. Select the "linux-cluster" folder.
7. Filter messages
Actual results:
Error while filtering folder:
Cannot get folder "linux-cluster list": folder does not exist.

Expected results:
Messages should be filtered.

Are you still encountering this problem on Fedora 7?
Comment 2 Robert Peterson 2007-07-16 12:18:22 EDT
I'm not using Fedora 7, I'm on FC6.  I have a dual-monitor setup that
uses propritary drivers that I'm afraid might break on F7.  I need to 
do some research and experiments with F7 before I'll be comfortable 
moving to it.  Right now, with RHEL5.1 so close, I can't afford any
down time at all on my development box to upgrade.
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2007-11-07 22:40:02 EST
I tried to reproduce this but the capitalization didn't match the problem
description.  The filter seemed to work for me but I'm not sure I was testing
the problem correctly.

Setting this back to NEEDINFO until Robert can provide an update for F7 or F8.
Comment 4 Robert Peterson 2007-11-09 19:12:43 EST
I upgraded to F8 and this problem seems to have gone away.  So feel
free to close this one.

Good to hear!  Thanks for the update.
