Using IMAP+ with Evolution on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

This is a quick note to highlight a fix for IMAP users with Evolution email client on ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Evolution 2.28.2 is shipped with 10.04, The IMAP performance is crap basically.

To fix it you need to upgrade to 2.30 which supports IMAP+

To fix do the following:

In a terminal write this:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jacob/evo230

(remember to reload your repository info … you can write this to do it: )
sudo apt-get update

Now simply run your ‘update-manager’ and your Evolution packages will be upgraded 🙂
(Note: If you have added the Exchange MAPI-plugin to your 2.28-installation, remove it first as it conflicts with the new 2.30)

Modify your email accounts to use IMAP+ from the protocol drop down menu.
