Bug Description

Was running Quantal daily, and latest drop of evolution.

lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu quantal (development branch)
Release: 12.10

apt-cache policy evolution
    Installed: 3.5.90-0ubuntu1

Initial attempt to send message failed, and message was left in Outbox.
Subsequent attempt worked, but message in Outbox was not removed, and every other send/receive caused message to be sent.
Message needed to be manually purged.

Don't commit to fix that one: evolution isn't installed by default, still assigning Mathieu to see if he can find something :)
