What you describe looks like the case for local mail (which has fewer
per-folder options than IMAP).

This is new information. You hadn't mentioned that the unread count
appears when you visit the folder. Which exact version of Evo are you
using? The current stable version for Fedora is 2.26.2, but some earlier
versions did have a problem such as you describe. Do a "yum update
evolution" to make sure you're up to date.

Also, Evo 2.26 uses an SQL database for indexing, whcih *can* sometimes
get corrupted. A few days ago I posted a short script to deal with this,
but here it is again:


       cd ~/.evolution/mail/
       for i in `find . -name folders.db`
               echo "Rebuilding Table $i"
               sqlite3 $i "vacuum;"

Do this only after shutting down Evo completely (evolution
--force-shutdown). It will make Evo reindex all your mail when you
restart it.

Hi Poc,

Thanks for the help. But it didnt solve the problem.
I think some of the folders were corrupted after I imported them into evolution, which might have been causing the problem.

I just reinstalled the whole fedora 11 on my laptop, started evolution and imported all the old mails again. Now its working fine.
