At last: GNOME adds native Exchange Server support (DesktopLinux.com)

With Evolution 2.24, the message count on the search folders was wrong 99% of the time. Some folders will show as having new mail when there is none there while others show no new mail when there is. And the Unmatched search folder was removed. Then you would get wacky things like "111/-3498 unread messages". Basically the search folders became useless, which is why I'm still using Evo 2.22 even though the rest of my GNOME desktop is 2.24.

I've emptied the trash and even closed/restarted Evolution but no go. Looks like I'll be downgrading back to 2.22.x :-(
As far as attention from users. This is another category I've been disppointed about. I've been submitting Evo bugs for years and usually I don't get any response. Then, 2 or 3 GNOME generations later I finally get a response either asking for more info, for which I don't have because I'm not using that version anymore, or that the issue should be fixed in a more recent version and that I should upgrade. The vFolder count bug has already been reported (I think I'm CCed on it) and I see it's gone through an entire GNOME release without being fixed.

What would be really useful is if it would then stop being so appalling inefficient with its IMAP server, and go back to using STATUS to check for new mail in folders, rather than issuing SELECT and then re-fetching the flags for every mail each time.
But the bug reporting that regression has only been open for three years so far. They haven't got round to it yet.
