Evolution error
 
It appears the automatic importation of the older evolution stuff still
has a bug or two. I wrote and sent the solved message, and it
apparently went out, but I received the following error message:

Your message was sent, but an error occurred during post-processing.

The reported error was "Failed to append to
mbox:///home/lesh/.local/share/evolution/mail/local#Sent: Invalid folder
URI 'mbox:///home/lesh/.local/share/evolution/mail/local#Sent'
Appending to local 'Sent' folder instead.".

Regards,
Les H

This has a documented workaround:
Click on Edit -> Preferences
Then, for each mail account that you have (I have 3), click on it, and
select:
Edit -> Defaults tab
and change the Sent Messages Folder to the Sent folder instead of the
incorrect #Sent folder.

I do not know why a fix has not been pushed out for this, 6 months after
the bug showed up. It affects a huge number of people.

Thanks, John,
I was quite tired when I discovered the error and didn't google it. I
appologize for not finding the issue, and appreciate your help.
