Re: [Evolution] Duplicated Evolution Folders

Thanks for the speedy reply. I didn't realise that you could even edit the search folders like that (I simply used to right click the folder and edit that way) - but that appears to make no difference. One of the folders disappears for a second and then pops up again. The vfolders xml only seems to contain single entry for each folder any way. So odd - as it turns out that not all the folders are duplicated - probably about 99%.

As for the SMTP - I can set up separate SMTP settings for each account in this version, but the dialog that pops up when you send/receive shows each pop account and only one smtp and that invariably appears to be the default account's.

I'll try grepping the evolution folders for the search folder names to see if there's a file I've missed that may contain a repeated set of the settings.

I don't know that anyone will be able to help you with this. 2.8 is
several years out of date, as is FC6.

I presume you tried removing the duplicate vfolders from the
Edit->Search Folders dialogue. Failing that, you could stop Evo, delete
the XML file and restart, but of course you'd have to manually re-create
your vfolders.

Otherwise I don't know what to suggest except that you update your
system and Evo version to currently supported versions (F11 and 2.26.3

No, each account can have a different SMTP server. Of course I'm talking
about Evo 2.26. I've no memory of what 2.8 used to do.

It doesn't appear to be duplicated, at least not yet.
