[Bug 1316508] Re: Evolution EWS forgets default folder settings


Problem now fixed and can no longer reproduce.


Ubuntu 14.10 AMD64

Draft Messages and Sent Messages folders now stay as On This Computer
rather than changing every restart, and this has been working for over a

Note that to solve another crashing problem I deleted my folders.db,
installed the debug versions of the Evolution packages and moved all the
messages out of my local Sent folder - no idea if these actions affected
this bug.

  Evolution EWS forgets default folder settings

  Create an EWS account and in Preferences/Mail
  Accounts/[Account]/Defaults attempt to set the Draft Messages folder
  and Sent Messages folder to be the corresponding folders in On This
  Computer, rather than on the Exchange server (e.g. by pressing
  "Restore Defaults").

  This works fine for the remainder of your session. A 
  grep Folder= ~/.config/evolution/sources/*
  will confirm the change.

  Now quit Evolution and restart it - the settings will immediately
  switch to the Drafts and Sent Items folders on your Exchange server.
  This can be confirmed by the above grep. I would expect the settings
  to be unchanged by a restart.

  100% repeatable, and annoying if you prefer to keep your mail locally.
