double click mail in inbox folder

Asked by Don on 2011-01-22

There is more than one problem. Running Ubuntu 10.10, Evolution 2.23.1
1. When I double-click on mail in my 'inbox' folder a new window opens up with nothing in it. Only the 'inbox' folder has this problem.
2. When I return to the 'inbox' folder sometimes the mail list is blank. It hangs, Msg "Generating Mail List". I have to click on the 'junk' folder and then go back and click on the 'inbox' folder to see the mail list.
3. Right now "There are no messages" is displayed in the 'Junk' folder but the count shows 1.

Added Sun Feb 6
Start mail client Evolution
..... Msg: Error while storing folder 'Inbox', no messages shown in 'Inbox'

Click on 'Junk' Folder and then back to 'Inbox'
..... Msg: Error while generating message list
..... Msg: Error while storing folder
..... Messages now shown in 'Inbox'

Do you have any details about your setup? I have seen some strange things, but this is one I do not recollect and cannot recreate.

Jeruvy (jeruvy) said : #2

Why are you not using the proper Evolution package from the Ubuntu Repositories?

Package: evolution-common (2.30.3-1ubuntu6)

I suspect you have an old version in place.

$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall Evolution

Copy and paste the output from that so we can see what it happening during the install.

I would logout, and then login again and test.

Jeruvy (jeruvy) said : #3

Sorry typo in that command. Use this instead:

$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall evolution

Good luck,

Didn't fix it and sorry, I forgot to copy the Terminal window the first
time around.

It is now hanging in Generating Message List for the Inbox Folder,
unless I go back and forth to Drafts or the Junk folder and back to the
Inbox Folder a couple times.

Anyway here is what the Terminal window looks like on the second
reinstall of evolution.

This bug report seems to lack a lot of detail about this issue, but it looks similar to yours.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/evolution/+bug/183136
I'm going to link this to your question.

Try this, its drastic.

$ evolution --force-shutdown
$ cd $HOME
$ mv .evolution .evolution-backup
$ ls .evolution

First we ensure evolution is shutdown. This ensures you are in your home directory, then we move the entire evolution profile (essentially a backup). Then we verify that .evolution does not exist.

Restart evolution, you should have an empty default client. Recreate one account. Test.

Please respond back with your results.

Don (dgreen-vermontel) said : #6

don@don-desktop:~$ evolution --force-shutdown
Evolution process exited normally
don@don-desktop:~$ cd $HOME
don@don-desktop:~$ mv .evolution .evolution-backup
mv: cannot stat `.evolution': No such file or directory
don@don-desktop:~$ ls .evolution
ls: cannot access .evolution: No such file or directory
don@don-desktop:~$

Clicked on the desktop icon for Evolution, it started.
I still have the three mail accounts I've alway had.
I did not have an empty default client.

Jeruvy (jeruvy) said : #7

That makes no sense. Why can't you move that folder?

Try to verify it:

$ ls -la $HOME

It should show up.
If so, then repeat above steps.

If it does not show up you should consider reinstalling evolution.

$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall evolution

Good luck,

Ok looking at this you already have moved .evolution to .evolution-backup.

drwx------ 4 don don 4096 2011-01-22 11:27 .evolution-backup

So I'm wondering if this is your issue..

Lets move .evolution-backup,

$ evolution --force-shutdown
$ mv $HOME/.evolution-backup $HOME/Documents/.evolution-old

Now logout, then login again. Start evolution.

Please report back your results. Include:

- Another 'ls -la $HOME'

Cheers,
