I've been receiving the error "lost connection to backend" since last week. My new mail appears in my 
inbox, but the filter process never completes. The error message pops up before filtering completes. 

Don't know if my problem is related to yours, but given the date coincidence, and the fact that 
everything was fine until about a week ago, I'm guessing that there's some relationship. Did you get a 
prompt for some security updates? My problem seems to have started after I installed those updates. 
(AFAICanRemember, none of the security updates was for Evolution, but maybe there were some gconf 
updates there?)


Hi Leigh,

I'm not sure it's related. I often get the same error message when using
Evolution to pull email from my office account remotely via
evolution-exchange (or brutus). 

Do you get that message when using Brutus or only when using the "old"

Good question. When I looked at my running processes the two were active
simultaneously. I just shut down Evolution, shut down brutus, then
reopened Evolution. Error message gone. Now, it's a sample size of 1. So
I'll run it this way throughout the day and see what happens...
