F15 & Evolution message read timeout


I installed fresh installation of F15 and I've allways used Evolution as my mailclient.

There was in older Evolution versions option "Mark message as read in X secs" I set
that to zero to read emails smoothly, now I have to wait after every message that it's got
"as read" and that's really annoying especially if it's automatically sent message from server
that I don't really have to "check" it just click it to get it as read.

I've been gone thru all the settings of current Evolution in F15 and haven't found anymore
that option. Maybe there's conf file somewhere that I can put that? Anyone have any
suggestions? That "Help" page for Evolution is kinda outdated.

Re: F15 & Evolution message read timeout

I'm having a problem with evolution in F15 where my unread folder e-mails disappear rather then letting me read them first,

In F14 I set a 5 second pause before an e-mail was marked as read. The e-mail would stay in the unread folder until I moved away from it, Now I need to check my e-mails in their individual folders which defeats the purpose of an unread folder.

I can't find any help --- even with google...

Talking Re: F15 & Evolution message read timeout

I came across this thread in a Google search, and I also found the answer!!!

yum install gconf-editor

Navigate to apps -> evolution -> mail -> display

Change the value of mark_seen_timeout to 0

I have no idea why it's not set in Preferences any more.

Thank you very much Now it's working again. Yeah indeed that's weird why that option
is removed from configuration.
