Good evening,

Am currently running Evolution 1.4.5 on Fedora Core 1 with both the
standard Redhat kernel and a generic 2.6.1 kernel. Evolution has worked
flawlessly for months, until a few evenings ago. I use both an IMAP
connection (from home) and a web based interface (from work) to my ISP.

I am now getting emails with blank "From" and "Subject" fields and with
a "?" mark in the "Date" field via the IMAP connection in the Header
pane. All email shows the correct size. The "From, Subject and Date"
fields all show correctly in the Preview pane and when opening the mail.
They are only blank during "Header" display via IMAP. (Headers show just
fine on the web-based connection).

This makes it impossible to determine what to delete off the server and
what to download for further reading. I am still on a 28.8 modem
connection, so I must make server-side determinations if I don't want to
wait forever and download garbage.

I temporarily configured Kmail and it shows the Header pane properly,
but I really don't like the application.

I've uninstalled and re-installed Evo via rpm - didn't help.
I tried moving the evolution sudirectory and letting it be re-created -
didn't help.
This affects all users on this machine.

Please help !

This has been solved. My ISP had changed their IMAP server to BincIMAP
v1.2.5. This was a known problem with that version, but, after I
contacted the developer, found there was a patch available. The ISP
applied it and now all is right in email land.

Thanks for all you help.
