Hi Dave,

Thanks for the tip; I checked the directory and it is, in fact, 755. Oh
well, I'll keep banging on this puppy -- eventually it will be beaten
into submission :)

What happened to me was that the evolution RPM file (for RedHat 7.2
anyway - not sure about other distros) isn't explicitly setting
permissions on /usr/lib/evolution/camel-providers/1.0, so this
directory was being created as drwx------ on my system.  Changing the
permissions on this directory to drwxr-xr-x (and the usual killev ;
oaf-slay bit) fixed it for me.

Hope this helps somebody out there.

I sovled my evolution-mailer crashes by 
# mv evolution old-evolution
# evolution

I had to reconfigure my three email acocunts, but evo is now running and
fetching mail without crashing. I closed the program, did a killev to be
safe, and copied my mail folders to the new evolution directory, restart
evo and there was my old mail, nice and accessible.

The only thing I still have to do is move my filters over. I'll have to
figure that out tonight.
