Description Christian Jung 2008-03-17 07:15:47 EDT
Description of problem:
If you move a mail to the "personal folders" folder, the mail is lost. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. move (or copy) a email to the top level folder "Personal Folders"
Actual results:
The mail is lost, no way to restore it

Expected results:
Either evolution should not allow to move messages to this folder, or there
should be a way to restore them.

Additional info:
Even looking through ~/.evolution directory, didn't find the mail.
Comment 1 Christian Jung 2008-03-17 07:17:02 EDT
Set priority to high, because data is lost!
Comment 4 Christian Jung 2008-03-17 07:41:27 EDT
I also tested with current evolution packages:

They show the same problem. If required I can add logs for evo 2.12, too.
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2008-03-17 10:39:35 EDT
I'm seeing it too.  I think this is going to have to wait for 5.3 though, since
5.2 bugs are pretty much locked down now and this is not a regression.
Comment 6 Matthew Barnes 2008-03-17 10:40:12 EDT
Or rather, 5.3 FasTrack.
