Re: [Evolution] Using evo for read-only folders?

No, evolution needs to add a uid header so it can uniquely identify messages in the event the mailbox is altered during a session (which presumably will happen).

You could try maildir format folders with permissions set approprately - that may, or may not, work.  But mailbox definitely wont.  Or use som imap server for the sharing.

Two Evo users on my setup, both of which access their mail in UNIX

User A would like to share a certain mailbox with user B, and has made
that particular mbox world-readable. B can cat the mbox file, but of
course not write to it.

User B has configured Evo to use that mbox file, but when accessing the
mail folder the following error appears:

  Error while 'Opening folder spool:/users/a/admin/#admin':
  Could not open file: /users/a/admin//admin: Permission denied

I presume Evo is trying to open the file in read/write mode. Is there
some way of making it accept read-only permissions?
