Description Espen Stefansen 2009-03-31 13:37:19 UTC
Description of problem:
I can't import pst-files in evolution. I choose "import" and select the pst-file. The importer doesn't recognize the filetype and i can't continue.

I looked at the source and AFAIK there should be a pst-import plugin, but it's not included in the fedora rpm.

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

Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2009-04-10 15:04:39 UTC
Will be happy to enable this feature as soon as Fedora gets a library for reading PST files.  I believe libpst-0.6.35 will grow an actual library.

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 12:50:42 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

I was able to convert a .pst file to mbox with readpst.


So it looks to me that fedora has this incorporated and the plugin should be enabled!

Comment 4 ritz 2009-06-19 20:34:24 UTC
BuildRequires would need libpst-devel, and libytnef-devel paclage, to allow the plugins to be built in.

Created attachment 348735 [details]
patch based on upstream code

We also need to add -

patch built against evolution-2.27.3 .

Comment 6 Matthew Barnes 2009-07-02 21:17:33 UTC
Patch is already outdated against libpst 0.6.41.

libpst has no API stability right now and it's not worth trying to chase.
Once it settles down I'll enable the Evolution plugin.

Comment 7 Milan Crha 2009-07-28 17:46:02 UTC
Back enabled in 2.27.5-3, as Matt told me. Thus closing as such.
