Works for me; what mail transport is this with?

Can you obtain a backtrace?

Comment 2 Dave Malcolm 2005-06-18 00:27:28 UTC
(I was testing with evolution-2.0.2-8 and the Exchange connector, though)

Comment 3 Taco Scargo 2005-06-19 15:04:27 UTC
I am using evolution-2.0.2-16 and using smtp as mail transport.

How do I 'obtain a backtrace' ?

Comment 5 Dave Malcolm 2005-06-24 21:43:22 UTC
Information on obtaining a backtrace can be found here (this page applies to
Fedora, but is almost entirely applicable to RHEL):

Backtrace of crashing evolution

Please note I was not able to copy the third line after "Thread 1" (so the line
that starts with in=0xc78380). I had to manually type it in. Maybe a hidden
character ???

Comment 7 Taco Scargo 2005-08-26 07:30:39 UTC
Additional info: when clicking forward the application crashes as well, but this
time immediately. The backtrace was generated by clicking the forward button in
the toolbar.

Comment 9 Dave Malcolm 2005-10-18 19:28:33 UTC
Which locale are you running evolution in?

Comment 10 Taco Scargo 2005-10-19 07:53:10 UTC
English (USA)
