Asked by George Herson


1. A Evoluion crash occurred when going into the Account Editor, then clicking Add New Signature... -> Edit signature -> Save and Close.

I tried to use the Bug Buddy to report it (as it had launched itself) but it said at the end "This Application has bug information, but Bug Buddy doesn't know about it. Please choose another application."

The bug is not reproducible. I tried ~5x.

2. Suggestion: Display an error message instead of just refusing to ungrey an option when there's a problem, so the user understands what's going on.

Background: I was trying to import a .vcf VCard by clicking File - Import - Import a single file and specifying a .vcf file but File type "VCard" remained greyed out. I eventually discovered that Evolution was being clever and examining the file w/o my knowing it and rightly determining it wasn't formatted correctly.

thank you,
George Herson

The "Reopen Request" link on the launchpad.net page implies this request was already closed by the responder but apparently the author must also mark it "Resolved" with something in the Message field, so this is it.
