Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 990571
evolution retrieving message forever if one quickly deletes two emails
Last modified: 2013-07-31 11:27:59 EDT
Description of problem:
If I quickly delete two (or more) email messages, by quickly pressing the delete key twice, evolution will then hang forever, just saying "retrieving message XXX" in the preview window.
The only way to proceed is to click on some other message and then going back to the message that previously didn't load. The message will this time load.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press delete twice
2. The next unread message will not load
I have a CAMEL_DEBUG=all logfile (78 MB) available upon request.
Thanks for a bug report. I do not think it downloads the message forever, it's rather a stale message in the preview panel (note the status bar doesn't mention the same operation). I noticed something similar when only reading mails, the message is not loaded (using IMAP+) and the preview pretends it being received. As this is not fedora specific, I'm moving it upstream. Please see  for any further updates.
