Unable to empty evolution trash folder

Evolution is my mailer. I found I can’t expunge trash folder, it showed

Summary and folder mismatch, even after a sync

At the end, I found a fix,

  1. Backup your evolution using the backup utility
  2. delete all ev-summary

rm -rf ~/.evolution/mail/l*ev-summary*

For evolution at Fedora 14, the mail folders are at .local/share/evolution/mail/local/

  1. I had the problem in Ubuntu. Here is how I solved it.
    First in Evolution go to File/backup evolution settings.
    After backup, delete the cmeta and index files in this folder.
    (YOUR HOME FOLDER)/local/share/evolution/mail/local/.#evolution.sbd.Trash.cmeta
    I thought I’d comment here in case others have this issue.
    I’m using Gnome 2.32.1
    and Ubuntu 11.04 – the Natty Narwhal
    and Evolution 2.32.2
    Cheers
    Dave
