Re: [Evolution] Saving my Inbox mail from loss when Evolution migrated to sqlite

Hi.  Please I need a little help.  Recently I moved my mail folders from 
mozilla mail to evolution (I like that evolution places the timezone in 
a reply when quoting).  Today I upgrade the evolution packages and it 
seems that in switching the folders to sqlite *all* of the mail that I 
had stored in my inbox (for quite some time now) is gone.  I've shutdown 
and restarted evolution and when I do, the Inbox folder shows a number 
of unread e-mails (487) but when I click on the Inbox folder it shows 
nothing.  I'm hoping that all of my mail is actually still there.  
Please, any help in recovering my mail, if possible, would be greatly 
appreciated.  Thanks.

BTW, I fired up mozilla mail to write this e-mail and have shutdown 
evolution to not cause any further problems.  Please help.  Thanks.

Your mail is still there. Check in ~/.evolution/mail/local to be sure (I
assume we're talking about local mail though you don't say so).

This is a known bug which has bitten some people but not others (I've
been lucky). Check the recent archives of this list for more
information. Note that the Unread count might be wrong though; that's
another bug.
