I have two IMAP servers and want to check all folders of these servers
for new mail (on both I'm using procmail).
Evo shows me that I have XX new mails and a moment later one of the
folders with new mails is displayed like the folder without anything
new. When I go to this folder there are those new mails. :-))

We know.  What imap server and version are you using?

I see this too. The server is running RH6.2 w/ the following imapd:

48 lurch->% grep imapd /etc/inetd.conf
imap    stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd imapd
49 lurch->% rpm -qf /usr/sbin/imapd
50 lurch->% rpm -qi imap-2000

Summary     : Server daemons for IMAP and POP network mail protocols.
Description :
The imap package provides server daemons for both the IMAP (Internet
Message Access Protocol) and POP (Post Office Protocol) mail access
protocols.  The POP protocol uses a "post office" machine to collect
mail for users and allows users to download their mail to their local
machine for reading. The IMAP protocol allows a user to read mail on a
remote machine without downloading it to their local machine.

Install the imap package if you need a server to support the IMAP or
the POP mail access protocols.

I'm experiencing (very often) mail component crashes. It looks like
problem with downloading the list of new mails and meanwhile arriving
new mail to folder. Other way the combination of these two actions looks
strange. I don't experience crash normally, only when I change folder.
Say me how to report something like 'strace' :-))

You need to use gdb and backtrace.  Infact a recent version of bugbuddy
will do this for you.  There is a faq/support page on
for details on how you do this.

It could be nice if I would be able to change the order of accounts
and/or to disable displaying of account, e.g. Local Folders, VFolders,
Other Contacts (I don't use these ones)

You can just delete most local folders (including other contacts/etc).

You can also just use a shortcut bar and hide the folder tree.

I also have problem with mail in HTML and ZIP attachment. The attachment
is not shown in Evo. The attachment is OK as I can see in mutt. I will
send the problematic mail to this mailing list soon.

ZIP?  Please report a bug on, and attach the message
there, do not send the problem mail to this list, thanks.
