[Evolution] [Fwd: Re: local mail spool still unaccessible with evo 3.4.4.-1]


Forwarding this problem to the list. Maybe somebody has a
solution/explanation? Is it fixed for 3.6.x? If so, is a simple backport

I was waiting for the latest bugfix release to see if the local mailbox
spool problem was solved. Unfortunately it was not :( Local mails are
delivered to /var/mail/<username> and these are the settings used for
the local mail account in evo. However, evo looks for this mailbox file
at  ~/.local/share/evolution/mail/<some_strange_directory_name>
containing the following files: INBOX.ibex.index.data, INBOX.ibex.index,
INBOX.cmeta, folders.db

Removing these files and restarting evo does not help: evo complains
about: "Summary and folder mismatch, even after a sync"
In the settings the local account is flagged as of type spool and for
Receiving Email the setting is: Standard Unix mbox spool file.

More information: Evolution tries to store the mailbox entry
at /<username>/INBOX which doesn't exist, when the mbox file is
at /var/mail/<username> . That filename is given in the evo settings for
that mail account, but is not honored??

Error storing 'mailbox: /<username>/INBOX (spool)': Summary and folder
mismatch, even after a sync
