Re: [Evolution] Evolution 3.34.1-2 "locked" in search

Hello Andre:

Thank you for your reply. Solution was discovered by accident. By unchecking "On this computer" in mailbox preferences, I was able to get all the other mail accounts visible. Search box cleared as normal, and rechecking "On this computer" but everything back to normal. There is an "Other" folder under the Inbox, but it was empty.

Root cause of problem may be related to fact that this PC was originally set up with POP mail accounts. Now only two mail accounts are imapx.

This is the first time in 5+ years of using Evolution that this has

Is there a solution?

Is that about a local folder? Or about a remote (IMAP etc) folder?

Does a mail folder called "Other" exist?

What does "Attempts to clear the text in the search field are
unsuccessful." mean exactly? What did you try, what happens, what is
shown? Are elements greyed out or not?
("It doesn't work" doesn't allow others to help - a clear description
of performed steps and what you see is more successful.)
