Thank you very much for the idea. You analysed the problem correctly. I
found I could revert to a previous version using the Synaptic Package
Manager (menu / Package / Force Version...). This gave me the 2.1.7
version and GNUMail was working again.

Many thanks. I hope the Debian packages are updated with a fix for this
soon, as this is a real show stopper for a new comer to Debian and GNUStep.

Best regards,
