[Evolution-hackers] Removing local junk folder?

2007-11-27 Thread Jules Colding
Hi,

I have a rather annoying problem:

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=499769

So, how do I go about deleting this mail from outside evo?


Thanks,
  jules

The default local account in Evolution stores mail in the mbox format
located in ~/.evolution/mail/local. Each folder is stored in a separate file
named the same as the folder. Metadata, summary and indices are stored in
files starting with the folder name and .. The junk folder is not a proper
folder, it is not a separate file. It is only a flag in the X-Evolution
message header. This is described at http://www.go-evolution.org/Camel.Local

In other words, open your inbox (or whatever folder the email originally was
stored in) with for example mutt: mutt -f ~/.evolution/mail/local/Inbox
I'd advise you to stop evolution with evolution --force-shutdown first.
From mutt you can save the problematic email (shortcut s), and also delete
it.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Øystein

Thanks a lot. I wasn't aware of the mutt trick.

'evolution --disable-preview' could be handy in such situations.
