View Full Version : [SOLVED] evolution sort, delete, and abort problems

Evolution sorting emails by clicking on the date column isn't working for me. Neither is right clicking on the column heading and specifying sort by date. Clicking does something - the email order changes, but not correctly.

Every first of the month, I manually clean out a certain folder (save-30-days). However, today, I notice the sort is broken, and also that folder has some old stuff in it that should have been deleted a couple of months ago. I suspect the sort has been broken for a while, and I didn't notice it.

Evolution has also been aborting just about every evening when I close it and log out of the desktop - something about a zero length string and the address book, which I don't use. So maybe something got corrupted. But sorting on a date is pretty basic.

Anyone notice similar problems?

Additional info:
The folder is local, on my machine.

The problem was that View / Group By Threads was selected. That option is specific to each folder. I haven't been using evolution that long, so maybe I just didn't notice the sort anomaly before this.
