Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 455132
Sent mail lost if IMAP not reachable and RFE for fallback
Last modified: 2008-07-14 04:18:39 EDT
Description of problem:
I have my ssent-mail filder on an IMAP tree.
IF the IMAP server happens to be unreachable, any message sent is not save in
the sent-mail and my copy is simply lost.
It would be extremely helpful to be bale to have a fallback to the local Sent
folder if the remote one is temporarily unavailable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Evolution 18.104.22.168 is the version this is happening.
always with the IMAP server unreachable
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure evolution to
2. filter or take down imap server
3. send messages
sent emails copy lost
emails are not lost and saved locally
Thanks for the report. It would be better to do this in upstream version. I
found a bug about that filled already, thus feel free to CC there yourself to
track changes. I chose that bug because the result is same, even circumstances
are a bit different.
