Re: [Evolution] move from mozilla to evolution problems

My IMAP server is Cyrus, but configured to use the many-rooted rather than
single-rooted tree, i.e. INBOX is just another folder, so I have the same
issue as Farkas. However the solution is not to change IMAP servers (even
if I could), because that wouldn't fix things like Trash, Sent or Junk
being sorted lexically.

With Courier/Evo they aren't sorted lexically (=alphabetically?), but as
one tells Evo to do.

 IMHO the way to go is either 1) allow the user to
rearrange the folder order to taste,

How would the user do this? Is this Cyrus-specific?

 or 2) put certain "special" folders
at the top, preferably with distinguishable icons. See Mozilla, Thunderbird,
MacOS Mail, etc. etc.

Which are not Evo, though.

 The latter actually puts all the INBOXes in one place
(assuming you have several accounts), though I'm in two minds about that.

Allowing more than one account is an admin/organization policy decision
that is not sanctioned here, at Billy. At least, mail may only be sent
(smtp SASL AUTH) by a system-authorized (LDAP) logged-in UID and
obviously only be IMAP-read by the same UID.

BTW, I have no problem subscribing to folders. Sounds like your IMAP server
is at fault. My Evo is the standard RedHat version (1.4.5) and worked
identically on RH9 and Fedora.

This is RH RHEL 3 Evo 1.4.5 on Gnome 2.2 (September 2003 release) and I
don't think you can compare it to your 2 distros. RH 9 is dead and
Fedora has gone its own, unfathomable way. I have no problem subscribing
with Mozilla 1.4.1 or Mozilla 1.5.

Thanks for your input ;)
