evolution should default to the MIT mail account, not the local mail

I've seen >5 users now be confused by seeing "On This Computer" as the default mail account and not noticing the closed "MIT mail" account. We should default to showing the MIT inbox, at least for remote Athena users.

Change History

We attempt to address this in the evolution wrapper:

$a .= '<account name="MIT mail" uid="mitinitial" enabled="true">';


$client->set_string("/apps/evolution/mail/default_account", "mitinitial");

However, it may not be working.

Maybe Evolution draws a distinction between the default account and the default mailbox? (both should be MIT mail)

Should be fixed by r23955, now in -proposed, which creates a folder tree state file when initially creating the MIT account, to expand and select the MIT INBOX.

Works for me... It's worth noting this only works if this is the first time an account has used Evolution, but that's honestly okay. Moved to production.
