Description James Antill 2002-06-12 13:59:07 EDT
Description of Problem:
If you create a VFolder on the status of messages (Ie. read/deleted) then when
the state of messages changes so that they should _leave_ the folder they don't
leave the folder until you restart evolution.

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


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

Create VFolder for messages that are _all_ of...

1. Read
2. Not deleted.
3. No replied to.

Actual Results:

as you read messages they appear in the VFolder, but as you delete/move/reply to
them they don't leave.

Expected Results:

 They should leave the folder again.

Additional Information:

 If you restart evolution, they will no longer be in the folder (presumably
because they don't enter it this time).
 This was all tested with an INBOX over IMAP.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-06-12 14:18:20 EDT
This is nominally the expected behavior... otherwise, you'd select to read a
message and it would disappear from the vfolder as you were reading it.
Comment 2 James Antill 2002-06-12 14:28:03 EDT
 Ok, I can understand why you wouldn't want them to disappear in real time (the
same UI problem occurs if you turn on hide deleted and delete messages as you
are reading a thread ... it's basically unusable).
 However it shouldn't still be there if I view another folder and then go back,
IMO. Maybe mark it as an RFE then.

That's the stated opinion from a thread a few months ago on the evolution lists
from upstream.  I'm not forking evolution, but feel free to file something in
their bugzilla (http://bugzilla.ximian.com) if you feel strongly about it.
