Artificial limit of 2GB for Inbox
Last modified: 2010-05-06 12:51:05 EDT
Description of problem:
"Mailbox too large" error for Inbox when hitting 2GB
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Filesystem limit is much larger than 2GB ...
For a "flagship" mail client this crap ! The underlying filesystem is able to produce files much larger than 2GB, im now completely stuck unless I build evolution from source or change distribution .....

Thanks for a bug report. This is not fedora specific issue, thus I'm closing this due to an existing upstream bug report . Please see  for more updates.
Note that there is a plan to move default storage format from mbox to the maildir, which doesn't suffer of this issue, unless 2GB large attachment (which can be also fixed with large file support). When this will happen I do not know, unfortunately.
