OK, so I'm an email hog. I don't like to use the delete key. Here's my setup: My email server is F10.i386 (yeah, yeah, I know its EOLed) Its up-to-date, running dovecot as my IMAP server. My laptop is F11.x86_64. I'm running the new thunderbird 3.0 which was just released. My Inbox was getting very large.> 70,000 messages in it. While things were starting to take a long time to do, yesterday I finally decided to do something about it. I created some 25 (or so) sub-folders in my primary email account and set about transferring various emails from my Inbox to the sub-folders. For the most part, I created an email filter for every email list I am a member of to automatically move emails from each list to its own sub-folder. It took me a while (> 4 hours). When I was done it was working. Kinda. I noticed that I had started seeing some really strange problems. While reading my incoming fedora-list emails (for example), thunderbird marked the email I was currently reading as un-read, right before my eyes! It also marked the 3 emails I had *just* read as unread. While going though that mailbox (using the Next button to read the next unread email), I read some messages 3-4 times before it finally told me I had read everything! That's when I started to notice that all of a sudden I had 38 unread emails in the mailbox I had read previous to the one I was in now. When I went back to read them, most of them were familiar! I had just read them. I wss going nuts. What's happening? This morning I st down to read my emails that occurred overnight. Thunderbird tells me I have 38 unread emails in my Admin box. When I go there to read them, it tells me there are only 24 unread emails! The first one is dated 9/26/2009! OK, so I read it. I'm pretty sure I've read it before.... I continue to read the other 23 emails. Then I hit the Next button again, and here I am back at this email from 9/26 again! While I'm writing this email, thunderbird now tells me I have 4 unread emails in my Admin mailbox. One of them is new. The rest are dated: 5/4/2009, 9/26/2009 (yeup, them same one I've read twice already today!), and 10/11/2009, and 10/11/2009. That's right, while I was reading them, it decided to mark another already read email as unread! Am I going nuts???? Oh, wait! I have 4 unread email in Admin: 5/4/2009, 9/26/2009, and those 2 from 10/11/2009 again! Now its happened again! Please, someone tell me how to get thunderbird to stop this madness!
Welcome to the club - You seem to be facing the same issues as I have been facing ever since the TB3 betas hit Fedora.
After things had somewhat smoothed since the inital Fedora release, with TB-3.0 (final) last week, things once again turn into "close to being unbearable/unusable".
Unfortunately, I don't know if who the culprit actually is: dovecot, TB3 or x86_64 or else. Ralf -- fedora-list mailing list [email protected] To unsubscribe: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-list Guidelines: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Communicate/MailingListGuidelines
