Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 477314
evolution does not show changed maildirs
Last modified: 2009-06-28 21:52:18 EDT
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login, change maildir content (e.g. by running offlineimap)
2. start evolution
no new messages displayed
They should be visible ;)
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?

I still see the problem with the following evolution packages installed:
Moving this upstream for better visibility.
