Can’t delete mail in my Trash folder in Evolution mail, get error “Summary and Folder mismatch”

18 sec read

  • First create a backup of your mail using Evolution by clicking on File->Backup Settings “This step is vitally important to prevent data loss”
  • By using your file browser browse to the following directory/home/YOURUSERNAME/.evolution/mail/local
  • Once in the local folder delete all files with the following extensions.
    .index
    .cmeta
    .ev-summary

    Very important to not delete the files with the .data extension

  • Restart Evolution
  • Evolution will now attempt to re-create all indexes
  • You should be able to delete the mails in the trash folder
