evolution hangs checking new mail
|Ubuntu Desktop Bugs|
Binary package hint: evolution
I use evolution for one medium-sized IMAP account. After upgrading via apt-get dist-upgrade to the intrepid packages, evolution 2.24.0-ubuntu1 hangs upon startup. The status bar shows that it is checking for new mail, and 'refreshing folder'. Clicking the 'X' to stop either operation has no effect.
Upon the initial upgrade and restart of evolution, it notified that it converted my mail files into a sqlite-based backend, which completed successfully.
I tried to apt-get remove --purge evolution, and re-install the packages to start fresh, without improvement. I am currently installing the evolution-dbg package if more information is needed.
