    Default Evolution does not display my e-mail messages

    For some reason, I had a problem with my OpenSUSE with Tumbleweed repository enabled that required me to do a hard power off of my ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC. I had Evolution running at the time. When I did a cold boot of my laptop and I ran Evolution again, it does not display my e-mail messages anymore. In fact, I had to install Mozilla Thunderbird with the Enigmail extension so that I can read and write e-mail messages.

    How do I fix Evolution so that it will retrieve and display my e-mail messages and I can write new ones using this software package?

    Thank you for help.

    What were you doing that caused you to power off the machine? If you were updating the system, Evolution may not be the only thing that's broken.

    If you have a backup of your Evolution settings, you should be able to restore this to get your email back. If not, check your accounts in the preferences and try to restore any missing accounts there.

    And to help chief_sealth and other readers: what distro are you running, openSUSE 11.3 or 11.4 or Tumbleweed?

    I am using OpenSUSE with Tumbleweed and the Packman all of Tumbleweed repositories.

    Nothing else on my system is broken. I checked over this weekend.

    I went into my preferences and I looked at my mail account. It is configured correctly. I still cannot view my e-mail messages.

    It is my Google GMail account. I do not even see the folder for my account anymore.

    What should I do to solve this problem?

    Thanks for the help so far.

    I typed in cd ~/.evolution/mail, but it says that no such directory of file exists. So, I am stuck with the same problem.

    I also installed Google Desktop search and I searched for folders.db, but I found nothing on my Intel SSD.

    What do I need to do to solve this problem?

    Where is my ~/.evolution/mail directory after all?

    Hi. I followed the directions and it still does not work for me. I cannot retrieve my Google GMail e-mail messages or write new ones within Evolution.

    Should I reboot my notebook PC to see if it works?

    I have not tried that yet after inputting the code per the directions on the web page that you provided.

    Thanks for your help so far though.

    Anyone else care to help?
