Re: [orca-list] Evolution Nearly Unusable on my System

Hash: RIPEMD160

I want to add that the major stability problems with Evolution and
Orca seem to be better if I stick to local spool and folders. Ass soon
as I get prompted for passwords or anything, that's when it completely
falls appart.  I lose speech and all.  I noticed that sometimes I can
do the alt-f2 and restart Orca but other times that doesn't do it
either.  I use IMAP for all my e-mail needs so if IMAP doesn't work
right with Evolution, then I'll have to stay with mutt.  From what
I've seen otherwise, I like Evolution and want to give it go where
possible.  I wonder how good the calendar works from an a11y

I thought I'd give Evolution a try this evening and the configuration
and setup went fine and seemed plenty accessible but after setting up
my IMAP mail account, it locks up all the time whenever I try and
restart Evolution and login.  Sometimes I get the prompt for my IMAP
password with speech and most other times, I hear a ding that
indicates the prompt for password but no speech.  I assume Orca has
crashed or something.  I can't alt tab to any other apps or at least I
don't get any speech to tell me if doing so or not.  I can attempt to
log off by pressing alt-f1 and choosing System menu and logout; I hear
the noises that imply loging off but then it hangs and I really never
get logged off.  The only keystroke that works for me is
control-alt-backslash.  That seems to be the only thing I can do after
that.  Basically right now, I cannot use Evolution at all without
losing speech all the time.  Does Evolution not work well with IMAP
folders? If it doesn't, then I will stick to mutt.  At least that one
works, more than I can presently say for Evolution.

Any ideas as to what is going on around here with this?
