Re: [Evolution] New problems with 0.15 and IMAP

My experience is actually the opposite. I use exclusively IMAP folders.
I have over 10 IMAP accounts with over 40 folders. I move e-mail between
each of them all the time. Some of these folders contain thousands of
messages. I haven't experienced any major problems with Evolution and
IMAP. The IMAP server I am using is Courier-IMAP which uses Maildir as a
store. One point that might be important is that the access to my IMAP
server is over a LAN.

Just wanted to share my experience with you. It might not be an
Evolution issue after all.

Yeah, I have trouble with IMAP access too. Sometimes it just seems to
become VERY slow, and sometimes it just freezes. I don't think it has
anything to do with the network since I can telnet into the mail server
on port 143, and the response there is very quick. In Evolution, when I
switch back an forth between IMAP folders, things slow down to a crawl,
and I can see all those connections on the status bar, but nothing seems
to be happening. I also ran ethereal to capture packets, but I did not
see too much IMAP traffic. Of course it could be server side, bu other
IMAP clients are behaving normally.

    I was begining to think I was the only one seeing this (I saw it in both
    beta 4 and beta 5)  it seems that during IMAP scans at the end it just
    hangs (CPU usage goes to MAX and stays there for a period of time)  And
    I notice that there is no IMAP traffic during that time period.  It
    seems to be worse when there are large and large numbers of folders in
    the IMAP directory (on the one server I have about a gigabyte of email
    in several hundred folders, don't ask).
