The problem I have with the above post is that we do not know what
hardware is being used or how apps are installed and configured.
Fedora 17 is still very new and is almost guaranteed to have bugs,
faults, clangers, difficulties, etc. It comes with the territory of
cutting edge software.
I have used Firefox, Thunderbird, Epiphany, Chromium and others with no
problems in both Ubuntu and Fedora versions for years with no ill
effect. I tried Evolution years ago but not since.
Actually the problem with the original post is that it tells us
virtually nothing useful about the OP's Evo setup, such as whether it's
a fresh install or an upgrade from an earlier version of Evo (which used
a different on-disk data format and file layout), whether he uses POP or
IMAP or Exchange or Groupwise or whatever, whether he's using filters
and has made sure the Search box doesn't contain an invisible character,
whether he gets any authentication errors, whether he's tried running
Evo with logging, etc. etc.
I use Evo under F17 and my experience doesn't match what the OP says,
not even slightly. I would suggest that the OP try the Evolution list
) where he might
find more focused help.
And lastly, comparing Evolution code quality to that of Fedora is a
distraction. Evo is a Gnome application, and as such is supported on
Fedora *exactly* as it is on other Gnome platforms.
