Description Scott Glaser 2008-12-01 13:27:33 EST
Description of problem: During the process of filtering the messages from mbox, the triangular warning reporting 'Check junk Failed' appears.

COMMENTS: Obviously, some of the items in mbox are being correctly processed
and some are obviously not. That is why I find the 'Pipe to Spamassassin failed
- error code 1" troublesome. It is almost as if there is some kind of a locking
or synching mechanism behind the problem, otherwise would not the pipe fail on
every instance, which is clearly not the case.

UPSTREAM? This problem has been reported in other distros as per google
searching, but problems seem to go unresolved or referred to the various

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


How reproducible:

Very reproducible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click Send/Receive Email
2. As the mail is processed the following message is displayed: Check Junk Failed Pipe to SpamAssassin failed, error code: 1

Actual results:

Message: Check Junk Failed Pipe to SpamAssassin failed, error code: 1  is displayed

Expected results:

Expect Junk mail to be processed by spamassassin

Thanks for the bug report.  This issue has been reported upstream, so I'll refer you to the GNOME bug report where you can continue tracking the issue.

Basically the issue is only error codes >= 64 actually indicate an error.  Lower numbered positive codes indicate the checked mail is indeed spam.  Evolution is misinterpreting any non-zero error code as indicating an error.
