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.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Restart evolution
"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.
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?
Please get back to us and reopen when providing requested information
This is working under 188.8.131.52 with the existing account.
