Description Yann Droneaud 2012-04-20 07:07:59 EDT
With evolution-3.2.3-2.fc16.src.rpm , exporting emails to a mbox file is broken.

See bugs:
- Junk between messages after saving an mbox file
- Exporting as mbox creates enormous files, appears to be somewhat mangled

A fix exists in evolution 3.3. A backport of the fix is required to 3.2.
