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).

Any ideas?

I've encountered similar issues when the new messages are flagged (on
the server) as having been "seen" -- Evolution will not filter such
messages automatically; it assumes that since they've already been seen,
they're not new.

this isn't actually true at all. We filter messages that have a \Recent
flag, filtering does not care about the \Seen flag at all.

  For me, this happens when I read my mail via the web,

yes, because the \Recent flag gets removed. This is just a natural
problem with using multiple clients to access the same imap mail server.

if you are going to view the same imap mail with multiple clients you
really need to do server-side filtering or there is no way you could
hope for it to "work".
