Description Josh Boyer 2008-05-05 15:51:50 UTC
Description of problem:

I have evo configured to use IMAP for my gmail account.  When accessing my lkml
folder, it gets to approximately 15% and then reports that the server
unexpectedly disconnected.

This started happening recently.  Evo has been working fine with this setup for
a couple months and last week it started doing this for the lkml folder only.

As an aside, claws-mail works fine.

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

evolution-2.22.1-2.fc9.i386

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Start evo
2.  Try to access the lkml folder
3.  Wait a few minutes for it to timeout
  
Actual results:

Times out, no messages displayed.

Expected results:

Access works fine.

Additional info:

After this started I trimmed some of the older emails in the folder via the
webmail interface to see if that had an impact.  It doesn't seem to have.

About how many messages are in this folder?

> About how many messages are in this folder?

According to claws-mail, 55683

Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2008-05-05 17:15:13 UTC
Hmm, strange.  I have at least that many in my fedora-devel-list folder on our
local IMAP server.  Maybe this is GMail-specific.

I assume this is all just mailing-list traffic, nothing personal.  Do you think
you could export the folder to an mbox file using Claws and attach it?  I'll see
if I can reproduce the connection drop on my own GMail account.

Sure.  It'll take a bit to export and then upload, but I'll get that going.

Davej helped out and made a lkml mbox of comparable size for us.  You can find
it at:

Upstream bug describes the same issue with a GMail account:
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=529199

Starting to sound like this is indeed GMail-specific.

Comment 8 Matthew Barnes 2008-05-19 16:13:34 UTC
I've been having trouble just /uploading/ that mbox to my GMail account through
Evolution.  GMail seems persnickety about large transfers in either direction.

Will try uploading with Thunderbird.

For shiggles and gits I tried using mutt over the weekend.  It would also crap
out when trying to access my lkml folder.  Doing a bit of googling seemed to
suggest that the mutt people blamed it on gnutls.  If they build it against
openssl instead, it works fine (reportedly).

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mutt/+bug/105736

Does evolution use gnutls or openssl?

Neither.  Mozilla NSS.

This magically went away.
