Hi all,

I still have problems with Claws-mail.
It's really a pity that this wonderful and powerful mailer is so full of bugs or little problems.

Here is my debug output when Claws-mail is freezing :

folder.c:1208:Counting total number of messages...
main.c:971:The name com.google.code.Awn was not provided by any .service files

I can't do anything, I have to kill -9 claws-mail ...

Do you have any idea of what it should be ?

Thanks in advance .

It looks like it could be in the Gtkhtml2 Viewer plugin. try unloading that plugin, see if it still happens. That is, if it something that is reproducible. You should also upgrade to the latest release (as it requests on the page where you entered this bug report). Also it may help to avoid exaggeration: 'so full of ...' etc.

Thank you for your help.

I'm sorry for my bad comments, I adore Claws-mail but unfortunately Claws-mail bugs or freezes many times a day !
It's not serious to have a mailer that crashes so often.

Every answer you made is to unload a module. I'm sorry but I want to see outlook breifing and I do want to read html messages.
For you information, I can't use Claws-mail when Fancy module is loaded because Claws-mail crashes.

I use Claws-mail 3.7.8 version because it seems to be the stable version for my Ubuntu.
