Description Jeff Clough 2010-12-20 12:11:26 UTC
Description of problem:

Evolution as shipped with Fedora 14 does not have a "Sent Messages Folder" configured under "Defaults" in the account options screen.  This causes a somewhat confusing error to appear when sending an email message.  Sent messages will still go on to their intended destination, and the message will be appended to the "Sent" folder, but the error message persists until the user goes into their account setup and sets a reasonable value.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):  Evolution 2.32.1

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Begin with a clean install of Evolution.
2.  Enter your account details (note under "Defaults" the folder is not set.
3.  Send a message, see the error.
Actual results:  An error message appears on the screen that may lead the user to believe their message did not go through or that they did something wrong.

Expected results:  No error message since Evolution should set a reasonable default value for this setting and/or not complain when it's going to fall-back on the "Sent" folder anyway.
