Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 448442
Status bar looks bad when checking multiple email accounts
Last modified: 2008-05-26 19:46:40 EDT
Description of problem: This is purely cosmetic. I have many email accounts, 20
or so, that get checked when I click the send and receive button. In the F9
version of Evolution, evolution-2.22.1-2.fc9.i386, the status bar explodes with
individual messages about checking each account. It is visually distracting and
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Set up multiple email accounts, probably ten or more for full
effect, and check mail. Look at status bar.
Expected results: Something a little cleaner and more organized. Maybe a single
message that says "Sending and receiving email" with some kind of status meter
maybe? Or maybe nothing would be fine too as the Send & Receive Mail window is
in the foreground anyway.
