Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Using Evolution 2.12, whenever I try to download messages for offline use (when using Exchange mode), program crashes. Also, when trying to edit files in offline mode, upon re-connecting, none of my changes are loaded onto the server.

Also, when I delete something locally, the server keeps a copy of it, and the local machine refuses to download the message. This causes the messages on the server to build up and require me to log on to delete them. This goes against the purpose of having a mail client edit messages on my computer.

It appears, from the gnome bug report, that perhaps this bug only effects users who are using the Exchange backend. I'm unable to reproduce this bug with a non-Exchange IMAP account.
