Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Uuntu Netook Remix 9.10
Evolution 2.28.1-0ubuntu2 0

What's Expected: When selecting folders to subscribe to, the folders that are not subscribed to should not show up in the sidebar mail folders. This should not change from session to session.
What Happens: folders can be hidden by unchecking a folder under subscriptions, or rechecking then unchecking a folder that is already hidden. But after restarting, all folders will show up regardless of whether they are checked or unchecked.

1.Yes it is reproducible. It resets every time I open Evolution.
2.Open up evolution. Look at my folders that are showing but shouldn't be. And then check my subscribed folders to confirm that the currently showing folders are unchecked.

If I check then uncheck the folder in the subscribed folders options, the folder will disappear in my folders list on the sidebar.

I already added the steps to reproduce, here they are again in more detail. Do you need me to specify on anything else? Could it maybe be the server?

1. Open up evolution
2. Look at the current folders that are showing.
3. Give angry look at folders that are showing in the side bar but aren't supposed to.
3. Check my subscribed folders to confirm that the currently showing folders are unchecked.

There's not much to it, this was after a clean install.

This is ridiculous, it is very easy to verify. I can confirm this is an issue in the latest version of Evolution, 3.22.6

Just discovered this Evolution account option to be checked:

* Right click on your account name in the sidebar > Properties
* Go under the "Receiving Option" tab
* Check the "Show only the subscribed folders"
