Really... with people paid to work on the mailer it might get somewhere...
the progress has seemed to be slow so far. But I HATE Balsa's backend and
would be glad to see 'evolution' developed more. (I would note that there
is a procmail-type thing for Win32 called Evolution... legal issue?)

I didn't see this announcement; I'm only subscribed to gnome-devel, not
plain gnome. Could you forward me a copy?
