I am running evolution-1.0.3-1 and I don't see this problem. I tried Select all
and checking the actions mention to see if apply filters was greyed out in
incoming and a imap folder. It worked just fine in both. Is the account setup as

I also can't reproduce this -- what type of mail spool is this on?
Comment 3 Jef Spaleta 2002-04-01 12:46:54 EST
No this are all imap servers.

I think this is is related to a more general problem
If i have several imap folders and I enter a folder without explicitly selecting
a message to read...many options become greyed out...even when i switch back to
a folder where i have a message selected.

To prevent this I have to switch to another folder and select a message to view.
It's like evo isnt keeping track of the toolbar scope when switching between
folders.  For a new selected folder without a selected message...the greyd out
buttons make sense.  But when I switch back to a folder where a message has been
actively selected, the buttons stayed greyed out.

Several buttons are affected...trash...apply filters  are the obvious examples
becuase I've run into both of these now

There was a bonobo race condition which caused something like this at one point
-- what version of bonobo do you have installed?

Closing due to lack of activity
