Bug Description

http://library.gnome.org/users/evolution/stable/b1a4ol61.html.en documents:

"Debug Logs

    Evolution 2.30 User Guide
    Advanced Configuration

Evolution allows you to view the error logs and set the display duration for the error messages that appear in the statusbar. When an error occurs, statusbar displays the error message for the specified time, then it is moved to the debug file.

    From the Help menu, select Debug Logs.
    Specify for how long error messages will be displayed in the statusbar."

None of this is true. There is no DEbug option in the help menu, and SMTP errors (for instance) are not displayed, neither via pop-up, nor via status line.
