Umm .. actually I lied.  Downgrading to version 0.6.2-0.6.b2.fc8 doesnt solve 
the problem.  That version used to work though - I was using it 2 weeks ago 
before the latest updates came through.  Perhaps it's a wider Ruby issue?
Comment 2 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-12-30 21:01:00 EST
The reason needs investigating, however would you check if
0.6.2-2.fc8 solves your problem?

(Not pushed to testing or stable yet, please download it from
 http://koji.fedoraproject.org/packages/alexandria/0.6.2/2.fc8/ )
Comment 3 James Begley 2007-12-31 04:03:30 EST
Yep, version 0.6.2-2.fc8 has fixed things.

By the way, are you using evolution as mail client?
If so, would you tell me the NVR (name-version-release) of
evolution. evolution-data-server for information?
Comment 6 James Begley 2007-12-31 09:16:40 EST
Yes, I'm using evolution as my mail client.
