Evolution email problems after ubuntu 22.10 upgrade

I really hope that someone can help here, as im running round in circles.
I recently upgraded ubuntu to 22.10 and everything is great except whenever I try to reply or create a new email in evolution it just hangs. I then have to right click on the icon and force quit the program.
I’ve updated to the latest version of evolution (3.46.0) and this still happens.
Thunderbird works fine, but all my accounts are held in evolution, has anyone got any idea what may be causing this?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

This should be fixed in Evolution 3.46.1: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/evolution/-/issues/2037

It would be useful to know what kind of account(s) you have. POP? IMAP?
Exchange? Something else?

Also, is this a Flatpak version of Evo? Judging by the version number
it might be, but I’m not very familiar with Ubuntu.


They are IMAP accounts, and the original version wasn’t a flatpak version, but after the upgrade from 22.04 to 22.10 evolution started this problem, so I upgraded using the latest flatpak version.

Hi Sebastian,

No it hasnt been fixed as its also doing the same on my alienware laptop, and im running version 3.46.0-2 (The latest one) Ive tried flatpak and vanilla versions, both give me the same problem on 2 different machines with 2 different installs, 1 upgraded from 22.04 (was working), the other installed fresh this morning from a bootable USB drive and then installed.
Its driving me mad, as I use evolution for my business email.


3.46.0 does not have the fix (and neither does the 3.46.0-2 Ubuntu package), 3.46.1 does.

Can I get it in a deb file from anywhere?
Ive not been able to find it.
Thanks for the quick reply.

You have to ask your distribution for package formats used by your distribution. We provide tarballs only.

BTW am NOT Technical, with past first decade as a USER found easier to learn using TERMINAL.

Can you open your TERMINAL then use command: apt show evolution
Then copy and post your results.

My example1: Version of evolution
Then try example2
Copy and paste results into text file, save to text file, when finished copy and paste your results which will help more Technical than self can give better advice.
