View Full Version : OT: Evolution

21st October 2001, 07:20
I'm running Evolution under Mandrake 8.1, I've setup my POP accounts and selected to leave mail on the server as I need to also check from alternative locations. All seems to work fine, Evolution logs in and downloads mail and leaves it on the server. The problem is the next time I log in it downloads all the mail on the server even the ones it has already downloaded, so each time I check mail I get another copy of the emails I already have. Anyone use Evolution and have any ideas on this?

Actually this is not an Evolution problem I've tried a couple of other mail clients and they do the same thing. Still puzzled though as to how to fix it.

hmm, could be a mail server problem...

also check mail clients options and make sure it marks downloaded msgs as 'read'

Yep, use the "mark as read". However, POP wasn't really made for multi-site mail access. If your provider also supports IMAP, switch to that.

FWIW, Evolution's IMAP support is really quite excellent in my experience.

This used to happen in windows too in the old days. Recently I have noticed that OE doesn't redownload old mail like it used to.
