[RHEL5.2] Evolution message filters on imap folders only work sometimes
Last modified: 2009-09-02 05:14:13 EDT
Description of problem:
When (automatically) filtering messages on imap folders (e.g. moving them to
local folders or assigning colours) this only works partly. The order of the
filters is irrelevant. All messages and their filters are affected from time to
time. It just stops working temporarly for new messages and later it works
again. Selecting the messages and apply the filters manually (Ctrl+y) will
filter the mails correctly everytime which have failed at the automatic filtering.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It's not really reproducible. Say 30% to 40% of the newly arrived messages won't
be filtered automatically. I cannot see any correlation between correctly
automatically filtered messages and message the automatic filter failed on.
All new messages should be filtered correctly.
I could not find a real equivalent at Gnome's bugzilla. This one is the most
similar one: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=306107
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?
Just tested it with evolution 2.12.3 in Fedora8. The bug is still present there.
Okay, thanks for the update.
