Just to document it in case anyone else is affected:

After upgrading to "Taalojärvi", the eMail client did not automatically check for mail any more. IMAP idle does not seem to work anyway, so it did the default (?) 30-minute-polling before the update.

Afterwards, the setting still was the same, but nevertheless, the mail client did not check for mails and also said so in minimized state ("last checked 3 hours ago" or whatever it displays there exactly...)

The solution was to:

  1. Close the email application.
  2. Change the polling interval to 15 minutes.
  3. Reboot.

Afterwards, it worked again, and continued to work when I changed the polling interval back to 30 minutes.

Other glitches I experienced after the upgrade:

  • The notification screen showed the last unknown missed incoming call as "true" after the update, instead of showing the phone number which called.
  • The first attempt to place and outgoing call failed miserably: The phone application hung/froze after a short time and I could not terminate the call attempt. (Noone was answering on the other end.) Then, suddenly the phone just rebooted. Subsequent call attempts after the reboot worked fine so far, but I have to add that I did not place a lot of calls since the update...

Ok, you're right - thanks for tagging the question as "answered"!

Concerning the other "bugs" / glitches: All of these only occured once after the upgrade so far, I cannot reproduce them and I cannot exactly state the conditions required before performing the update so the glitches appear after updating - thus I could post these as new questions, but would not expect that it would either help the users or the developers... :-(
