Evolution and gconf

view story

http://crunchbanglinux.org – I recently installed Evolution 3.4.3. I don't like the fact that it automatically marks messages as read after 1.5 seconds. Some searching led me to this question and answer. I set the required key with gconf-tool2 and confirmed that it was set. I restarted Evolution, but it still automatically marked messages as read. I then set the timeout key to 0 and restarted, but it behaved the same. Evolution is not respecting either of the two keys (/apps/evolution/mail/display/mark_seen and /apps/evolution/mail/display/mark_seen_timeout). Should it in #!? Does it "know" about gconf? (HowTos)
