Description Christoph Höger 2008-12-20 07:54:06 EST
Description of problem:
I have offlineimap setup to sync a imap account with a local maildir, evolution is setup to read that maildir. So the following happens quite often: I start offlineimap which changes the maildir content, then I start evolution to read my mail. But after the first startup, I can only see the count of new messages in the folder name (in brackets, e.g. 23 unread mails). In the folder view only the messages from the last run are displayed. "Refresh" has no effect on that.
When I close evolution, after a while the new messages are shown just before evolutions windows disappear. After the next start, sometimes the folder view is completely corrupted (showing only some messages) or ok. After the third startup all works fine as expected.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login, change maildir content (e.g. by running offlineimap)
2. start evolution
Actual results:
no new messages displayed

Expected results:
They should be visible ;)

Additional info:
I am quite sure, that this is not caused by offlineimap, on f9 running the very same version of offlineimap all works fine.

Are you still experiencing this problem?  If so, what versions of evo are you now using?
