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):
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.
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?
No it is not enough, the penguin keep moving.
Does this problem still exist in current versions?
