What's the prognosis on that, Michael? Is that in the release critical
category, or a "yeah, whatever. We'll get to it eventually".

It will be release critical to be no worse than previous releases ...

Anything better will be a bonus.

[As you'll recall, the offline use case has been my bugaboo for years

unfortunately there has been great cause for skepticism in the past. I
would dearly love to stop mucking about with offlineimap / getmail /
fetchmail / ssh tunnels etc and just use Evo, period - but the bar is
high. I will NOT be caught again an hour out over the Pacific only to
discover Evo won't allow me to access IMAP messages that it perfectly
well has cached but, since it wasn't in "offline" mode when last
disconnected, it couldn't figure out it had. That made me very

That sounds like a pretty old bug there.

Certainly all of the normal or higher bugs that have been filed against
evolution for offline imap (not imap4), are fixed.  Or they're things
like performance that would be more nice to fix than need fixing (and
really can't be fixed in a reasonable amount of time).  As far as i'm
