I've recently upgraded to 2.8 (upgrade Suse to 10.2) and found that I

But after experimenting some more (again) I found that if I disable the

Ctrl-Y), I get a much more stable Evo.

Anyone have any ideas?
(I have about 20 filters)

I don't know what your situation is, but I am assuming that you are
accessing an IMAP account? If that is the case, and you are an
administrator on the server, you can configure the mail server to use
procmail/maildrop, and then do server-side filtering that way.

Or use Sieve of your server supports it. Unfortunately Evo doesn't give
you any help with either of these solutions.

A less intrusive way is to use the popfile IMAP module [1]. I have not
used popfile myself, but apparently you configure it to classify your
mail (based on bayesian classification), and it connects to your IMAP
account at regular intervals and sorts your mail. You can use this
approach as a regular user.

These solutions may not be optimal, but if you are experiencing
instability in Evolution it is probably the best that you will do.


However at (bottom of the page) it says 
that Evo is not recommended for use with the IMAP module of popfile. Note that this page is over two years 
old, so who knows ...
