Hi, everyone. Thanks to all of your responses to my earlier postings, I'm starting to get a better overview on Evo/E-D-S internals.
The discussion about hiding certain IMAP folders based on server-side annotations made me think about an overall design idea. Matthew, in one of your postings you mentioned that there are long-term plans to move email handling into E-D-S and provide D-Bus access to that from Evolution. This made me think whether we could "fake" something like this while Email handling has not yet moved to E-D-S. Will it be possible for us to implement some Proxy Camel provider which will run inside Evolution the way a real Camel Provider does? Instead of handling Email by itself, this Proxy Provider would instead make calls to a true Camel Provider running in the E-D-S process which would do the heavy lifting and return the results to the Proxy Provider in Evolution, which in turn would present them to the Evolution process. We would need the possibility to define extra D-Bus communication between Evo and E-D-S for that, right? Does this approach make any sense? Is it possible to implement this in a plugin? If it was possible, it would enable us to hide the non-Email-IMAP-Folders from Evolution and handle all Email from within our backend just by not propagating the full folder lists to the Proxy Provider. The issue with Kolab is that Email and PIM-Data are stored within the very same IMAP tree for each account, so it would probably lead to trouble to try and set up independent Camel providers for Email, Contacts and Calendar data since they would access (and cache) the same data on the IMAP server concurrently. Having one true Camel Provider in the backend which will also be accessible from a Proxy Provider within Evo, these problems would be significantly reduced. Now, I'm really interested in getting to know your insights. :-) Best regards, Christian -- kernel concepts GbR Tel: +49-271-771091-14 Sieghuetter Hauptweg 48 Fax: +49-271-771091-19 D-57072 Siegen http://www.kernelconcepts.de/
