Thread: Gnome 3 - Evolution not receiving mail whilst running.

  1. #1

    Default Gnome 3 - Evolution not receiving mail whilst running.

    Hello there - hopefully somebody will be able to help me.

    I'm new to openSuse after installing it on my work machine as a replacement for Ubuntu.

    I have Evolution mail up and running and all is well other than I am having a problem when receiving mail.

    When I first start Evolution, it checks and downloads my new mail without any issues however whilst it is running it won't download any mail, either automatically or manually via the Send & Receive button.

    It appears to be checking my accounts (the progress box pops up briefly) and is not reporting any errors, just not downloading until I close Evolution and then restart.

    Sending is working perfectly.

    I must admit that I "imported" my old mail in a bit of a cack-handed fashion and did have to uninstall/re-install Evolution - I noticed that it uninstalled a few extra packages however when I reinstalled, it only selected the main Evolution packages.

    The fact that it is receiving on Evolution start-up I think rules out my settings being incorrect.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    Chris

    Hi

    I'll mark this as solved - I installed Evolution again and it is now working.

    Cheers

    This is still very much broken. I don't see any errors running evolution in a terminal but something is up.

    Hi
    Broken what?? From the command line run;
    Code:
    CAMEL_DEBUG=all evolution >& evolution.log
    See anything in the log?

    I use it on the netbook with both mail and nntp and it works fine?

    Hi
    So have you tried a re-install of evolution and it's components?

    Yes.

    If i close and restart evolution it will retrieve my mail but only immediately after restart.

    The log file is massive. What exactly do you need to know?
