Description Dams 2003-06-04 07:25:15 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

Description of problem:
evolution is not setting e-mails in /var/spool/mail/yourlogin as read and the
gnome mailcheck applet keeps saying "you got new mail", which makes the applet
useless since you cannot detect when new mails arrive.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. put gnome mailcheck applet in the panel. Configure it to check
2. wait for an e-mail.
3. evolution & (i suppose evolution is configured for this mail account)
4. read all e-mails in your local mbox with evolution

Actual Results:  The penguin in the mailcheck applet keeps moving. If you type
"mail" you'll see some e-mails are still "N" (new).

Expected Results:  The penguin should stop moving.

Additional info:

Evolution 1.0 had not this problem. Evolution 1.2 had though.

If you expunge (to sync the changes to the disk), is it fine?
Comment 2 Dams 2003-06-29 16:18:17 EDT
No it is not enough, the penguin keep moving.
Comment 3 Zack Cerza 2004-07-21 15:36:32 EDT
Does this problem still exist in current versions?
