I'm currently using Evolution to check an MS Exchange account (at work).
I'm using Debian Etch, but i had the same issue running Ubuntu 8.04 with the same exchange account.
Periodically (ranging from once ever five to fifteen minutes) Evolution shoots up to 100% load and remains there for roughly five minutes.
While this is occurring, all functionality hangs (sometimes giving me gnome's "darkened window").
I can kill all evolution related processes and relaunch, but i'm hesitant to as evolution takes quite a bit of time to load all messages and start.
I'm wondering: has anyone who's encountered the above problem been able to resolve it?
I'm running evolution 2.6.3 with evolution-exchange.
Incidentally, it also appears to utilize just under 1GB of memory while this is happening.
