Re: {Possible Spam?} Re: [Evolution] Send/Receive suddenly stops working


I figured it out. I had somehow inadvertently clicked the offline button
on the bottom left of the main window. Normally when you do that, the
send/receive button becomes disabled, but for some reason it wasn't
disabled. I hadn't been aware that I was in offline mode, and Evolution
sure didn't give me a clue.

I would suggest to the developers that when someone clicks the offline
button, you should put up a message box telling them that that's what
they did. I was baffled by it, and I got my CS degree ten years ago, I'm
hardly a newbie!

I had that problem too with an evolution 2.2.2-4 on SARGE. I believe it appeared
after an  installation of GFORGE witch uses a mail client too.
I've no solution for now and send that message in case it could help to localize
the problem.

I've been using Evolution for about a year with no problems, on Suse
Linux 9.2. Yesterday the Send/Receive button just completely stopped
responding. Mail in my outbox is still sitting there, no mail is coming
in. The dialog box that usually appears when it's sending/receiving does
not come up. I'm writing this from my web browser-based client.

My wife has an account on the same machine, she uses the same Evolution
but does not have this problem. I suspect that something got messed up
in the mail folders or the config. I have not changed any config
settings in months.

Has anyone got a clue why this might be happening?
