1.52.1.  RHBA-2009:1261: bug fix update

An updated evolution-connector package that fixes various bugs is now available.
The evolution-connector package is an add-on to Evolution, an e-mail, calendar and information management client, that gives it the ability to interact with a Microsoft® Exchange Server.
This updated evolution-connector package includes fixes for the following bugs:
  • when adding a new Exchange account, a Mailbox name separate from the user name can now be specified. (BZ#205787)
  • a memory leak related to using Exchange accounts has been plugged. (BZ#393761)
  • dragging-and-dropping messages into the "Personal Folders" caused those messages to be irretrievably lost. Dropping messages into "Personal Folders" is now disallowed. (BZ#437768)
  • incoming mail filters had no effect on messages received by Exchange-based email accounts. This has been fixed in this updated package so that incoming mail filters work as expected with Exchange accounts. (BZ#446095)
  • in certain situations, notifications were not shown for calendar events stored on an Exchange Server. With this updated package, notifications work correctly as long as Evolution is configured to remember Exchange Server passwords. Otherwise, notifications fail to be shown. (BZ#480164)
  • moving an Exchange folder containing subfolders to a different location resulted in the loss of all subfolders and their emails. With this update, all subfolders and their contents are copied or moved correctly and without any loss of data. (BZ#480849)
All users of evolution-connector are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
