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

It's just that I am surprised to get Evolution notifications (e.g.
calendar messages) before I have even started the email program, i.e.
behaviour similar to that of Outlook.   

But, seriously, that is not my problem. I have about 80 emails waiting
on the POP server, and, it seems, they are being fetched one at a time,
at intervals of about 10 minutes (sometimes 2 or 3 mails arrive at once)

Also, when I try to delete a mail from Evolution, it gets struck
through, but is only sent to the wastebasket after about five minutes.

This is driving me nuts!

I don't know MS Outlook, what kind of "sickness"? What do you mean with
"below the application level"?

JFTR I run

[rocketmouse archlinux ~]$ pacman -Q evolution
evolution 3.10.3-1

on Xfce4 on 64 bit architecture, with 4 POP accounts and don't
experience this issue.

Most of the times "missing" mails are sorted because a user randomly
changed the "Show" setting or by accident wrote something in the
"Search" field.

Connections between a MUA and the ISP's server could fail for several
reasons. Evolution has got bugs, but using POP/SMPT is ok.
