Re: [Evolution] IMAP hang in version 2.8

Hi -- Wonder if you'd post to the list *how* you overrode the "default namespace". Is this something you 
changed within the Evolution Preferences? Or...did you have to recompile something? Or is this a setting on 
the IMAP server that you were able to change??

I thought the info might help others in the same boat...

Various other mail clients (Thunderbird, Evolution 2.0 on a different
machine) connect happily. Help?


For reasons that remain unknown to me, the IMAP server defaults to a
namespace of "~", so Evolution was trying to list my entire (large,
complicated homedir) instead of my mail folder; overriding the default
namespace solved the problem.
