I have a handful of emails in Chandler IMAP folders, but haven't
experienced any problems. Sounds like there's a bug, but might be
buried underneath the particular circumstances of your repository. I
have logged a bug here: https://bugzilla.osafoundation.org/
If you're comfortable with it, it would help Grant if you could give
him your log. (If you go to Tools>>Logging>Log Window... you can see
the file directory path to where your log lives.) The logs are broken
up into multiple files over time, so be sure to submit a log for the
relevant time period.
To summarize your problem for the bug, is this accurate:
1. You upgraded to 0.7.7 (from 0.7.6?)
2. New messages in your IMAP folders weren't being downloaded.
3. You forced an "Email Sync" by right-clicking on the In-collection.
4. All your messages (old and new) were re-downloaded as dupes.
5. You reloaded your original .chex file from before the dupes were
6. You moved the old messages from the Chandler IMAP folders (in your
7. You tried Syncing again by clicking "Sync" in the toolbar.
Chandler appeared to be scanning your Inbox and downloaded 1 message.
But it should have downloaded 30 messages. Right-clicking on In to
"Sync Mail" didn't do anything.
A couple of questions for you:
Q. Did you ever get any error messages in Chandler? Timeout errors
perhaps? (We've seen this happening recently.)
Q. What email client are you using?
Q. Your IMAP folders are on an Exchange server by any chance are they?
Q. What platform / OS are you on?
