Re: [Evolution] How to find mails which have disappered ?

I am having a similar problem right at this moment with Evolution. I
know that I have about 75 mails on my pop server (amongst others,
several from this list!). They are being downloaded about one every 10
minutes or so, and then comes an error message that Evolution could not
get a POP summary and a second one that the pop server closed the
session. (By chance this mail was the latest to arrive. I can send
mails, as you can see)

I posted a forum thread on opensuse/applications (English) a couple of
weeks ago describing in more detail the stability problems I have been
having with Evolution. In case anyoone wants to look, the title of the
post is 'Evolution unstable' 

Here is the text of original post (there are a couple of replies, but no
progress in solving the problem):

"I am running Evolution 3.10.2 on Opensuse 13.1 (64-bit) on Gnome 3.10.

There are 2 email accounts one is an EWS account and the other POP.

Every first time Evolution is started after reboot it 'freezes' during
the initial accessing of one or other or both of the account servers. In
the case of the POP server, one ore more emails may be downloaded, but
the process does not go to completion and hangs at the n+1th mail. This
freeze does not time out, i.e.Evolution is stuck in that state for ever.
In the case of the EWS server. the message 'loading...' appears in the
the account and Evolution remains stuck in that state for ever.
(Sending/receiving mails or deleting them from the inbox causes
Evolution to freeze.
It may be possible to write mails in that condition, but not to send
them). Only if there are no mails on the servers will Evolution behave
as normal.

Quitting the program seems the only alternative, but Evolution does not
quit and waits for ever (i.e. no time-out, and no message to force
quit). On logging out from Gnome, there is a message that Evolution is
waiting to quit and it does finally complete the log-out after about 5
minutes (estimated). On logging in again to Gnome, Evolution behaves
normally from then on.

Could it be that Evolution is tucked in the system at a level below the
application level and is, therefore, beset with the similar sicknesses
to MS Outlook?

Has anyone else noticed this behaviour? Does anyone have a solution?"

I was downloading the mails as I usually do, but this took much more
time to do (more than 5 minutes). I tried to stop the download, but
nothing happened, then evolution crashed.

Mails that were completely downloaded should be available by Evo, the
other still should be on the server. If you can't see already downloaded
mails, check that "Show:" is set to "All Messages" and that "Search:" is
