I manage my IMAP email account with Evolution.
I would like to synchronize locally all folders and emails of this account for offline work and backup purposes.
I checked "Synchronize remote mail locally in all folders" on the account setting AND, for each folders, checked "COpy content of the folder in local for offline operations" (sorry if the translation is not accurate, Evolution is configured in french).
Despite theses, my emails are not all synced when i disconnect evolution (button with plug at the bottom left). It asks me if i want to synchronize all folders, then do a quick operation and once disconnected i can't open most of my mails, a message is displayed said:
The message is not available in offline mode This can be due to the message not being downloaded yet. The folder, or the account, can be marked for offline synchronization. Then, once the account is online again, use File->Download Messages for Offline Usage, when this folder is selected, to make sure that all the messages in the folder will be available in offline mode.
It seems only the selected folder is syncronized.
Of course this is the same if i click on File > download messages for offline usage (once again the translation can not be accurate).
I use Evolution 126.96.36.199, Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Do i miss something? is it a bug ?
