connection issues with Kopano IMAP servers

Bug #1813268 reported by bjo on 2019-01-25
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
evolution-data-server (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

* Impact
Evolution doesn't work with Kopano IMAP servers:

* Test case
Configure an account on a Kopano IMAP server and try to use it from evolution

* Regression potential
The change is in the imap handling code so it would be good to test on a few different type of server that things still work correctly


3.30.1-1 has the following issue with Kopano IMAP servers:

Disable request of BODYSTRUCTURE when its response is broken

In 3.30.4-1 it's fixed, so a backport to cosmic would be great.

Thanks, setting as fix commited but technically it's fixed in disco and a request for a SRU, it would be a good idea to udpate to the current 3.30 version in cosmic indeed
