Re: [Evolution-hackers] Send/Receive in the Toolbar


If we decide on this, then the terms could be something like
"Synchronize" or "Refresh" and feels that "Synchronize" seems more
appropriate of them. Do we have any better terms?

But the issue could be that a user, might enter calendar / contacts and
press "Synchronize" or "Refresh" and expect the calendar/contacts to
sync their a/c. In reality send_receive i/f should be implemented by all
the components and should sync respectively. But since it is implemented
only in Mail, where ever the user moves and clicks "Synchronize" it
syncs just mail and not the respective components.
But i feel its ok. Probably it can go as a known issue or so. 

Any way a patch like this would do this.
