[chandler-users] Imap folders, database & auto triage

File > Sync > Mail  has rarely cured it but sometimes it has.

Dashboard is probably my problem - I have also just realised it is machine specific ! Would like an option to Sync Dashboard to hub ?

Ill empty my trash (mmmm that just crashed Chandler twice - maybe I can't :D)

I understood the auto triage from other services was something fixed or added recently ??

Once in a while I see this, but not as frequently as it sounds like you
are.  When it's failed, going to File > Sync > Mail has always fixed the
problem for me, does this ever work for you?

There are a couple of things that could be happening, off the top of my
head.  Unfortunately your Inbox and Dashboard are *not* synced, so if
you have any items in there, they'll get backed up but they won't
necessarily show up the same in all Chandlers.

Another possibility is that I believe we backup Trash, so if you've
emptied trash on one Chandler but not another, there could be lots of
trashed events that aren't synced that are being backed up.

I've been seeing this occasionally, too.  It seems like auto-triage just
doesn't happen once in a while.  I can't fathom what would cause this,
but we should keep our eye out for it.  Might be worth filing a bug, I
don't think one exists yet.
