Evolution Mail


Hi. I received two e-mails a while ago to Evolution from. No subject line, no sender, just the date filed has a ?. If I highlight either of these two e-mails Evolution crashes. I have managed to get around it by quickly clicking on another e-mail when I open Evolution and then just avoiding those two. However now when I open Evolution I am in a different folder (other than inbox) and when I click on inbox I have no time to quickly click on another e-mail. Any ideas of how to fix it permanently or another way I can open Evolution so that it doesn't open on either of those two e-mails.

Perhaps it could be caused be database corruption?

Try rebuilding the database as described at http://www.expatpaul.eu/2010/04/fixi...-in-evolution/ and let us know how you get on.

Can you view the headers of the mails? If so, they may tell you from whence they came.

Thanks, but I couldn't find this file "Move file /home/dc/.evolution/mail/local/folders.db" in order to trash it.

That's because, unless there is a remarkable coincidence, your username isn't dc (the one used in the example in the link).

Try ~/.evolution/mail/local/folders.db

~ is a shortcut to the current user's home directory, no matter what their username is.

I still can't find that. Even just folder/db can't be found if searching for files in files or the Ubuntu equivalent of windows explorer

What i did find is .config/evolution/mail/folders/ and then a whole lot of files that all start with et-expanded-folder:__local_. Then each one is suffixed with inbox, trash etc. Maybe I can upload a screen shot of those files

Ok, thanks. One of the problems about getting info off the internet - it can be out of date.

Which version of Evolution are you using?

Thanks. A list of where the data files are stored for that version can be found here: https://help.gnome.org/users/evoluti...torage.html.en

So it looks as if the file location is now:

~/.cache/evolution/folders.db

Hmm battling there too but what I did find is the attached image of file location folders.db. Do I need to delete that? Will ti not delete my data in Evolution?
