Message Filters for incoming mails cannot work
Last modified: 2009-10-23 12:17:50 EDT
Description of problem:
Message Filters cannot process incoming mail filter rules.
I have set evolution Message Filters to run a program if
I receive a mail that satisfies the rule I have set in the
filters, however, evolution cannot store the rules correctly,
and of course, does not run the program that I want it to run.
But, evolution Message Filters works well with outgoing mails.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% reproducible on my machine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure you are in the 'Mail' view mode,
if not press 'Ctrl + 1', or click 'View | Window | Mail' on
the main menu.
2. click 'Edit | Message Filters' on the main menu of evolution.
3. click 'Add' on the 'Message Filters' window.
4. set the Rule name to some name that does not conflict
the current existing names. for example 'Untitledxxxx'.
And in the section 'Then', choose 'Run Program' in the first
column, and /usr/bin/gedit in the second column as the program
5. click 'OK' to close the 'Add Rule' window and save the rule.
6. select the rule that you have just created, and click 'Edit'
on the 'message Filters' window.
you would see that the program to run is now '(NONE)'
evolution Message Filters cannot save the rules for incoming
mails correctly, and of course, cannot execute the rules correctly.
it does not run the programs I want it to run, or beep, when I
receive the mails that satisfy the rules.
save the rules for incoming mails correctly, and run the
programs I have set it to run correctly. Beep if I set it to beep
when receive the mails that satisfy the rules.
Please upgrade evolution to the latest package in updates and/or updates-testing and see if it still has problems. Changed version to 10 as it seems your using Fedora 10, as the version of evolution you listed hasn't been in rawhide in a while.
