Default Evolution unstable due to being unable to expunge folder

> Hi,

Noticing this as well and already brought up and known. It's a new way of
cacheing is what was explained to me, and was mentioned that hopefully in
the next point release it will be fixed. See the archives in the last 2-3
days as I mentioned this and was told be the maintainer I believe. Guess
we just need to wait for gnome to release another version if not already
done and for it to trickle down stream.


I've had to resort to my webmail for now as I get tired of the crashing,
even on checking emails via pop.
