View Full Version : [ubuntu] Evolution Mail

January 27th, 2009, 11:13 AM
I have set up Evolution to be my mail client using imap to/from my mail provider (gmx.com). I am very pleased - it all works OK and Evolution is great. One thing I am not use to (having used pop before) and not sure if this can be configured differently: in Evolution I have three headings in the left hand pane:

On this Computer
Search Folders

so there are two sets of mail folders - one for On this Computer and one for xxx@gmx.com

I can see all my mail (inbox) in xxx@gmx.com but if I want to Send a mail when I am in Evolution and click on the New icon and send a mail it appears in the Sent folder in the On this Computer set of mail folders. I think I can see the logic but is there a way of either not having the On the Computer sub set of folders and only seeing xxx@gmx.com or having Send mail appear in the xxx@gmx.com sub set of mail folders?

Thanks for any help - ideally I only want to see/have to use one set of mail folders in Evolution.

Whatever you do, don't delete from the "top" identical set whose folders don't always mimic the bottom set of folders for some reason I cannot figure out, or you'll delete your email ...
