Re: [Evolution] IMAP issues with Evolution 1.4: use offlineimap!!!

not to harp on this, but the evolution imap support is not that good..i gave up a couple off months ago and switched to offlineimap (, it does imap real well and turns the imap emails into md folders which evo can read real well! So no loss of functionality and on top of that offline email reading (yes including attachments which evo seems to forget all the time).

Also sending is much faster using md folders: with over 15,000 emails in my Sent folder using IMAP under evo means minutes of scanning time each time i send an email (yes i know it is the imap protocol fault not evo's). With md folder it is local so instantaneous.

In the Mail Account Settings under tab Receiving Options, do you have
disabled "Show only subscribed folders" and set the correct "Folder
Namespace" if needed?
