Re: [Evolution] Disable header changing in IMAP?

As I've said it happens only with Evolution running.  It does not happen with Outlook Express.  I have one pop filter running on the local inbox, which isn't doing anything with the imap account.
Well obviously your config is making it do it.  It WONT do it by itself.
well, this presumably takes place on the server, so is not an issue at
all with Evolution's IMAP cache.

SpamBayes does not run on the server...
Ahh, so you have spambayes downloading messages, then changing their headers, then re-uploading them?

If this theory is even close to being true, then your server-side
filtering solution is broken and has nothing to do with Evolution.

SpamBayes is not serverside.  Again, NIH so I'm sure you didn't even take a moment to see what spambayes is.

Quick list of imap filtering:

1. Download message, make it as deleted
2. Check message for spam clues, place results in headers
3. Upload checked version to server
4. Purge deleted message

Somehow, only when evolution is open, the deleted copy becomes undeleted.  Then purge does nothing.
Don't run both clients at once I guess.  What you're doing is really nasty, you should do it on the server if thats what you want.  Evo has 'known issues' with some servers and multi-access to the same folders at the same time.
This also happens on a co worker's system who uses spambayes and evolution.  I used balsa for a while today and the problem never occured, but when I opened evo again I had a dupe in the first 10 minutes.

it IS internal. do the headers exist on your server? no, hence they are

mailers are allowed to add headers to their internal repositories all
they want. In fact, I can't name a singler mailer that doesn't. Even
mutt and pine do.
But you *didn't* add a header!  So when I click "show email source" or "show full headers", don't show it!
Oh groan.  Get over it.  We add all sorts of meta-data.  And its useful for tracing whats going on, and completely harmless.
