I was forced to Evolution from Thunderbird when we moved to exchange 
server from pop/smtp.  Our exchange server doesn't have pop or imap 
access so this means the Linux users have to use Outlook Web Access to 
get our mail.  This is a very slow and tedious problem.

At first I was using FC4 but have since upgraded to FC6 and evolution 2.8.2.

I had a large series of filters based on how I sorted my mail in 
Thunderbird.  I would access my mail in the mornings when getting into 
work and be reading in a few minutes, even when there were over 1000 
messages.  Now it takes a very long time to get to a point of reading my 
mail.  As an example, I started to access my mail at 13:08 with an inbox 
of 76 messages.  I have a very basic filter to move all my mail to a 
local folder.  This process took 6 minutes.  In the morning, I am 
looking at almost an hour.  This is not productive.

I tried to filter on the server but I just ended up with a mess and was 
accused of crashing the server once.  This was due to the message line 
on the bottom of the UI was indicating 100% complete when it was only 
100% complete on that particular message.

As a comparison, I copied and saved the messages to a mailbox that I 
accessed via Thunderbird and I could run multiple filters in seconds, 
including the mouse clicks to make them run.

Now, I have searched and searched for information on the 
evolution-connector but didn't have any luck.  Where can I find 
documentation on this application?  I didn't find anything on the Novell 

As for the running of evolution, how do I get it to move the messages 
faster automatically?  A simple filter to take all my mail in my inbox 
and move it to a different local box takes forever as stated.  I think 
if I disable spamassasin it would work faster but the message posted to 
the mail list on December 12th never got a response, at least not to the 
list.  Of course any reply may have gone to the OP instead of both or 
the list.

I have many other issues but these are the two that are affecting my 
productivity and ability to even look at evolution as an email client.

I have the same prob here - I use Thunderbird at home (GMail POP) and
forced to use Evolution in our MS only office.  Evolution (2.8.2) is
slow and crashes regularly (well not Evol, the backend service) - I
think its because the Junk filter and Mesg Filters are trying to move
the same messages.
At the moment I have a working solution - I open Evol, wait for all
messages (headers) to download, then wait for junk filter to complete -
then select all Inbox messages and hit Ctrl-Y (filter).
This seems to work most of the time.
I'm still debugging a bit - but will file a bug report when Im certain
about whats going on.
