Hi all,

I am experiencing some problems with my Inbox since our IMAP Server
switched from an old HP box running a small imap4 server to a new Lotus
Domino Server. 
While I am still able to receive mails as I used to, filters are no
longer automatically applied to new messages in my Inbox (applying them
with ctrl+a, ctrl+y to all messages works, though - so no problem with
the filter rules and the box for automatically applying the filters is
Another minor change I realized is, that while with the old system
unread mails moved from the Inbox to other folders were immediately
subtracted from the number shown next to Inbox but now the number stays
until a check for new messages occurs.

I tested that behaviour on SuSE 8.2 and 9.0 with Evolution 1.2.2 and
1.4.4 (both Evolutions on both SuSEs - all the same problem).

Just a thought - I was having problems with 1.2.2 and filtering, but
what I was primarily trying to filter was those damn virus emails that
come as huge attachments. Turns out that at least here, with 1.2.2 and
pulling mail down externally to Evolution from a POP mailbox to local
disk (using fetchmail), Evolution will not automatically filter anything
with an attachment.

Plain-text messages work fine with the filtering working automatically
though. Manual application of the filters *does* filter the attachments.
Just a thought, in case all of your messages comes through with an
automatic attachment (company logo, say).

At some point I'll try a later version of Evolution and see if that
fixes it - as I'm down to maybe getting 4 or 5 of those specific virus
mails a day now (rather than the 100+ I used to get) it's one of those
tasks that is less important...
