View Full Version : [ubuntu] Evolution Crashes Upon Adding Attachment

February 25th, 2010, 09:21 PM

I am not certain this is in the right place, though I am told that evolution mail is linked to the gnome project and perhaps someone in here can help me.

Recently, Evolution began locking up every time I attempt to add an attachment to an e-mail. It doesn't matter what attachment or its size.

It allows me to click the "attach" button on the composed message, but after selecting the file and clicking "attach" to finalize my selection and actually attach it to the message, it locks up indefinitely, requiring me to kill the process.

I have tried rebooting to no avail. Further, my memory and CPU are not in excessive use at the time, nor is my swap space.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

I have found a workaround... I can drag and drop the files into the attachment area and then close the attachment box without this side-effect, so I guess it works fine in this regard, just not if I click the buttons... so problem somewhat fixed?
