Description of problem:
If I close Evolution and then re-open it, it loses one specific setting, which
is my email address. I have this problem on one computer with RHL 8 and
evolution-1.0.8-10, but not another computer with RHL 8 and the exact same
package version. The problem computer was installed off the boxed set personal
edition but the computer without the problem was installed off the beta team's
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter GNOME.
2. Open Evolution.
3. Click Tools|Mail Settings
4. Select the account in question
5. Click Edit to open the Evolution Account Editor
6. Set email address under Required Information.
7. Click Apply, then OK
8. Exit Evolution
9. Restart Evolution
10. Repeat steps 3-5
11. The email address is set back to firstname.lastname@example.org
Actual Results: I try to send mail and it bounces back because it's sent with
an invalid email address.
Expected Results: Evolution should be retaining the settings.
I can't think of anything extra. See Description.
I haven't seen this on any of my machines or reported by anyone else. Are you
maybe running out of disk space on the one machine or something? Or not exiting
Closing due to inactivity. If you have any further information to add to this
bug, please feel free to reopen it.
