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

I see the following with strace:

/home/<user>/.local/share/evolution/mail/spool/: (No such file or directory)
/home/<user>/.local/share/evolution/mail/smtp/<user isp>:465 (No such file or directory)
 stat64("/var/mail/<user>" etc = 0
 open("/var/mail/<user>", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 33

Several times: (varying 6 char extension to <user>. 
stat64("/var/mail/<user>", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0660, st_size=95669778, ...}) = 0
open("/var/mail/<user>RKL7MW", O_RDWR|O_CREAT|O_EXCL|O_LARGEFILE, 0600) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)

(evolution:16230): GLib-WARNING **: GError set over the top of a previous GError or uninitialized memor
This indicates a bug in someone's code. You must ensure an error is NULL before it's set.
The overwriting error message was: Could not lock '/var/mail/<user>'

And that is the root of all your problems.

Check the ownership and permissions on the /var/mail/<user> file - it
should be owned by <user>. group should be "mail", and permissions
should be -rw-rw---- (i.e. rw by user and group, no world permissions).

I suspect that at some point you have upgraded or changed your distro
and although you have used the same username, the UID of that user has
changed - hence the mail spool file is called the correct thing, but is
not owned by the correct user.
