In this case there isnt much of a difference since you probably
dont have any other application called evolution-* which is
running but is unrelated to evolution.
Its fairly straightforward to see that using evolution --force-shutdown
is a much safer bet.
Hope that helps.
the -f flag matches on the entire command line. yes the

AFAIK "--force-shutdown" does not restart Evo automatically. I've
certainly never seen it do this. It justs shuts it down.
The real question is why does evolution have so many problems? I restart
10-15 times a day.
First I thought it might be a problem with the exchange option of
"synchronize for offline usage" I won't try to get the exact wording
because that is what caused evolution to hang for 5 minutes during the

So, I turned this off and well it was better for a couple of hours and
then it was back to the same old problems no mail showing up. can't

Although I do get a new error dialog more often, "Can't refresh folder,"
and a few "Could not contact server", "lost contact with backend
exchange process", but these do not all of these require restarts.
Filters on exchange 2.12.0 seem to have stopped working whereas they
worked on 2.8, but that was much worse about staying connected and
getting new mail.
Then I submit questions and get no answers, but, I have found out that
if I submit a slightly wrong answer for somebody I do generate replies,
and I appreciate Patrick correcting my mistakes, I will not make the
same ones again.
I'm not an Evo devel, just a user of several years' experience with this
software. I generally butt in when I happen to know the answer or see
some ambiguity in someone else's. Sorry if that's irritating at times,
but I know what it's like to ask questions and get no answers. I posted
one a while back about periodic freezing of the Evo UI, which I would
have expected to generate some reaction, but either no-one else is
seeing this, or I wasn't sufficiently clear, or there isn't enough data
for a meaningful answer. In any case it's still happening, literally
while I type this.
What you might try doing is setting "export CAMEL_DEBUG=all" and running
Evo from the command line. That will generate many many debug messages
which might help to track down the problem.
