When I click mail message in evolution and drag it into the open note either tomboy closes or comp freezes.. I have tried uninstall, restart multiple time it seems that the evolution plugin isnt working I use tomboy to track communication at work: I write time of calls subjects etc,, drop email related to a particular project into the note and when discussing the project I have all the communication available to me in one note, very very useful. I just upgraded 2 laptops to 12.04 (actually both were clean install) The same problem is present on both computers Compaq presario and Sony Viao

If anyone knows an app that suport drag and drop emails (any client will do) please tell me I miss it so much..I tried clawmail last night but there isnt a .dll and I have no knowlwdge of compiling. Iused evolution email purely for that drag and drop , so I guess I will uninstall and go back to thundirbird instead. – bsod May 21 '12 at 23:32

I solved it, it only work if evolution is in pop protocol and notIMAP. I have reconfigured email account in pop and it now works again . I ticked leave a message copy on server so they dont disappear from My imap account.
