Re: [Evolution] How to look at native Linux mail msgs in Evo

Damn, this didn't work for me in CVS.2001. (last one I got from
red-carpet).  I mean, I can go through the process, but I don't see the
folder show up anywhere.  Is there anything in particular you need to do to
have it appear in the Folder window?  Or is this only working in a more
recent version?
