Description wyang 2010-02-26 06:11:02 UTC
I recently upgraded from 2.22 to 2.26 and I am seeing the issue described here:

I have two IMAP accounts set up with SSL in evolution and only one is affected.  Most notably, the affected account has a certificate that has a root CA that isn't known by evolution.  After many minutes pass the operations eventually go through.  The first time I noticed this, the SSL message to approve the certificate popped up at the end of the timeout, which is why I suspect that to be related.

This occurs every time I restart evolution.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Restart evolution

Actual Results:  
"Checking for new mail (...)" "Refreshing folder (...)"
I can click on the X for refreshing folder but then it just moves to the left in the operations bar.  No other effect by clicking X.

Expected Results:  
It goes fast like it did under 2.22.

It also happened once when I was switching to the Inbox on the affected IMAP account but I was not able to reproduce this subsequently.

The timeout took about 3 minutes.

How does it behave on a new created user account? Can you try with evolution-2.28?
