 Hi all;

G'day!

 478151: I lose the ability to see older messages in my Exchange inbox

This happened to me yesterday with 2.11.90! Restarting Evolution still
wouldn't let me see any messages at all in my Exchange INBOX and would
sometimes crash evolution-exchange-storage. Deleting
~/.evolution/mail/exchange/[MYEXCHANGEADDRESS]/personal/subfolders/Inbox
fixed the problem. I think, although I can't be sure, that it happened
after restarting Evolution because of the bug bug below:

 442098: Folder list shows I have new Exchange mail, but it doesn't
 appear in the summary

This one has been happening to me since 2.8 but has mostly been fixed
since I downloaded the 2.10 and 2.11 source and compiled my own rather
than use the Fedora Core 6 package. However I can still make it happen
every single time if I visit my Unread Mail search folder. Unread
Mail searches two IMAP inboxes and one Exchange inbox for any messages
received within 1 week or is not Read. I've given up using it and just
read the mail in the real mailboxes now. Even removing the Exchange
inbox from the search and just having the two IMAP inboxes still causes
new mail in the Exchange inbox to not appear.


Paul, thanks for the Subversion Makefile thingy. I've had a go running
it on my Fedora Core 6 box and after a little bit of fiddling I've
nearly got it to work. I just need to install a newer version of
intltool (the FC6 supplied version is too old) and hopefully I'll get it
to build.

The only change I had to make to the Makefile to get it to work was on
line 271. I had to change:

 $V pkg='$*'; $(SVN) checkout '$(SVNPKGURL)' $$pkg

to:

 $V pkg='$*'; $(SVN) checkout $(SVNPKGURL) $$pkg

The single quotes around $(SVNPKGURL) meant that the contents of that
variable were being quoted literally in the shell so the $pkg shell
variable was not being expanded.

Thanks!

 Here's a question: did you notice what was the earliest visible email?
 It sounds almost impossible to believe but EVERY time this happens to me
 it happens the same way: all the mail in my Inbox before July 01, 2007
 becomes invisible.  It doesn't seem to matter how many emails I have in
 my inbox after that, it's always that day.  I've even deleted some of
 the mail in early July and late June but it still happened the same way.

I only have 1 message before July 01 (I religiously archive old mail)
but I couldn't see ANY message in my INBOX not even the one from June.
Plus, this is the first time I've ever seen this happen. So it could be
a different problem with the same solution. :-)

   442098: Folder list shows I have new Exchange mail, but it doesn't
   appear in the summary

 This used to happen very repeatably: I just had to visit my local Inbox
 or my local Junk folder and *bang*, no new mail would show up in the
 Exchange inbox.
 
 Now, it's not so easy; I think it might only be happening with the Junk
 folder now.

I can recreate it every single time by going to the Unread Mail search
folder. As a test I just deleted the search folder (in Evolution, not in
the shell) and recreated it and now the problem has gone away! So my
money is on some sort of corrupted config file somewhere. Argh!
