Description of problem:
smime encoed emails hangs evolution emailclient, emailing RH internal emails
smime encoded hooks up evolution, I am currently using RHL 7.1 with ximian rpm's
and Evolution 1.0.3 But the same with rpm's out of Gnomehide on my home machine
wiht RHL 7.2
Looking @ ximian mailing list this is beeing reported already.
Looks like they will fix this pretty late.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.receive smime encoded emails
2.klick on them to open them
Actual Results: Evolution hooks
Expected Results: Evolution opens and decode smime encoded email
Do you know if this is already filed in Ximian's bugzilla so I can track it
there as well?
This has been in the evolution mailing list @ ximian, somone saying it will be
fixed in Evolution 1.2
Not sure it it's in ximian's bugzilla yet, i assume so, at least they are aware
of it and want to fix it.
But it does not look too good for RH Customers if RH stuff looks seemingly
broken when receiving smime encoded email. And RH customers will definately come
back nailing down the problem on them.
Yeah, I've seen the discussions on the various lists but haven't yet seen a
concrete decision on when complete s/mime support will happen. And
unfortunately, evolution gets very little of my time so there's not likely to be
much I can do to help push it along. I'll keep watching for whatever comes up
Deferring until evo 1.2 is closer to final
