Re: [Evolution] Evolution and IMAP access

It appears that Evolution dies pretty regularly when any other process

copy of Netscape Messenger running from home that periodically checks my
email. Every time it does, Evolution's Mail client dies. :-( This does
NOT affect me if I am using Netscape Messenger (which apparently closes,
then re-opens the IMAP mailbox every time it tries an access). I wonder
if this is a 'feature' or a bug that Evolution opens and holds the IMAP
mailbox forever and dies when any other process accesses it...

If anything, this sounds like a problem with your IMAP server. Your IMAP
client at home will (/should) have a completely independent session to 
your IMAP client at work. I am happily running multiple mail checkers
and mail clients concurrently against my IMAP account (Cyrus 2.0.7) with
no problems.

I am experiencing fairly frequent hangs (and crashes) of the mail
component, but it doesn't appear to be related to my IMAP connection. I
guess that's down to using CVS stuff, though. I would report them as
bugs, but only one is readily reproducible, and I'd like to check it out
in gdb first.
