Re: [Evolution] Summary and folder mismatch after trying the usual fixes

Hello Zak,

My Inbox grew to 573MB from 1999-2008. Evolution started choking on it for me. Periodic crashes. Very frustrating. My solution was to move my original 573 MB inbox to a different folder name and let Evolution create a new Inbox.

After I did this Evolution was much more stable.

If your Inbox is large, I highly recommend renaming it (from the Linux file system) and letting evolution create a new one.

Best of luck,

The "summary and folder mismatch even after a sync" error is pretty common in Evolution. Usually just closing the program and re-opening it is enough to get rid of the error. Sometimes, it's necessary to delete the .index, and .cmeta files, then give it time to resync. I've done all that.

I also moved .evolution/mail/local/*, started with an empty inbox, then used the import function on the old one. After doing so, the problem occurs again, which suggests there's something about the contents of the inbox that Evolution doesn't like.

I have 35,000 email messages stored here, and I'd like to keep them in Evolution where I can sort them, search them and arrange things with search folders. I'd be happy to delete a couple corrupted messages if that's the issue. The difficulty is finding them. If there's something specific to look for, I can write a script to search the inbox for corrupted messages. If there are other solutions or workarounds, I'd really like to hear them.
