Description Christopher Beland 2007-01-30 17:43:31 UTC

I often use Evolution in offline mode to read messages on the train.
I store my mail on a home IMAP server.  Today, I was sorting mail by
dragging and dropping it between IMAP folders.  It was working fine for
most of my trip, but now it is stuck.  The status line at the bottom
of the Evolution window says "Retrieving message 315 (...)" and
"Moving messages into folder Yokel/old (...)".  These operations
normally complete almost immediately, but for the past several
minutes, nothing has changed, and I cannot look at any other mail.

After arriving at work, I set up my network and selected File -> Work
Online.  Now I see two copies of "Reconnecting to IMAP server
24.63.XX.XX (...)" but nothing is happening.

So I attempt to close Evolution.  I now see on the lower left status
bar "Storing account 'imap://beland@24.63.XX.XX/' (...) but nothing is

After kill -9'ing Evolution, I restart Evolution.  It's now
functioning normally again, though the mail I was trying to sort in
the last operation has not been moved.

This has been reported as a more general problem at, and
there are process traces:

It's still a problem in Fedora 7, with evolution-2.10.3-2.fc7.

The patch from upstream bug [1] should help you, but it is there since 2.12, so
in Fedora 8. Can you check if it helps and close this bug if so? Thanks in advance.

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

Comment 4 Christopher Beland 2008-01-18 17:20:08 UTC
Hmm, this looks like a duplicate of Bug 220479, which is still present in
evolution-2.12.2-2.fc8 for Fedora 8.
