Evolution 2.0.2 hangs after downloading 2 emails

George N. Reeke
TWIMC:
   I just upgraded to Evolution 2.0.2 as part of the latest
RedHat Enterprise Linux.  It seemed to import my emails and
server settings OK from v. 1.0.8 (supplied with Red Hat 8).
   Everything works fine except when I go to my POP server to
download email, I get always exactly 2 emails, regardless of
size, then it hangs forever on the third one.  I click cancel
and hit F9 and get 2 more.  I can get all of my emails this way,
and I can view them on the server with web mail, so there
doesn't seem to be a problem with the server.  There is no
relevant length restriction.
   Any ideas?
   Thanks,
   George Reeke

whou, migrating by leaving out two major release cycles (1.2 and 1.4)
has not been pretty much tested, i guess. :-/

i've never heard of something similar...
you can find information on setting environment
variables to debug evolution at
<http://www.gnome.org/projects/evolution/bugs.shtml>, e.g.
        CAMEL_DEBUG=all
should give you a log when sending and receiving mails.
perhaps a server bug, we'll see...

[fyi: 2.0.4 is the latest version of the 2.0.x series.]

cheers,
andre

Re: Evolution 2.0.2 hangs after downloading 2 emails

TWIMC,
   I posted the problem described below a couple of days ago.
With the help of a suggestion from Sam Coker, the problem was
resolved by checking the box "Disable support for all POP3
extensions" in the Receiving Options screen for my account
setup, quitting and restarting Evolution.  I'm just posting
this in case it might help somebody else.
   Two questions:  (1) What exactly was I turning off with
this option?  (2) Should I post this as bug to the developers?
If so, how and where?
   Thanks,
   George Reeke
