Description Chris Ricker 2002-02-27 06:40:14 UTC
I typically set up mail using mbox files in ~/Mail using procmail as the local
MDA.  Users then typically configure procmail to slice-n-dice their incoming
mail into multiple mboxes under ~/Mail.  This is a very standard configuration,
but it's not one evolution supports.  Evolution can be told to read one mbox
under ~/Mail, but it can't be told to read a directory full of mboxes.

Yep, as painful as it is, you have to import each spool file by hand in evo
1.0.x.    Already slated to be fixed in Evolution 1.1 (and might actually be in
CVS... haven't had time to actually look recently), but that won't be shippable
for Hampton.

Deferring until evolution 1.2 is out to verify it works there
