Re: [Evolution] bug 484987: mail threads not expanded by default, "expand all" fails

A while ago I filed the following bug report, but got no reaction. Are
other users of Evolution having the same problem or is it just me?

Dumping the original bug report to the list has had the desired effect: a discussion of the problem and a 
temporary workaround. Because the discussion unintentionally continued by private email (I'm not used to the 
web mailer I was posting with, sorry!), here's a summary:

* It is caused by not having the gconf key /apps/evolution/mail/display/thread_expand set to true. Setting 
that value fixed the problem for me. Using filters or remote vs. local folders is most likely irrelevant.
* The problem still exists even in the latest stable Evolution release and trunk (not checked).
* IMHO it affects all users updating to an affected version unless they create an Evolution configuration 
from scratch.

To see whether you are affected, use "gconftool-2 --get /apps/evolution/mail/display/thread_latest". It 
should report "true". To fix the problem, use "gconftool-2 --type bool --set 
/apps/evolution/mail/display/thread_expand true"

I'll reopen #519292 because that's where the problem was discussed and close the older #484987.

Bye, Patrick
