Re: [Evolution] Preliminary list of feature requests [Long]

Feature: Non-blocking sending of mail [Could you better describe
Description: I am using sendmail over a dialup, and when I send an email,
sendmail does a DNS lookup.  Evolution blocks until sendmail returns.
Annoying if the line is busy etc...

as a seperate process will sort it out, and hide the window when the
send button is pressed...

I believe sendmail can be configured to accept the messsage before doing
it's lookup and I will suss that out one day, but a newbie who basically
has trouble finding the powerswitch will probably think Evolution has

Feature: Virus Jokes  [This is questionable that this should really be in
here, especially if we would like to use this survey beyond the current
mailing list...]
Description: When an email with suspect vbs code arrives in the
box have an animated paper clip pop up and make fun of it's self...

Yeah...  This really was a Joke....  Further down the list was a more
serious comment about scripts, though I belive several Evo hackers have
gone on record to the effect that Evolution scripts will be sent to jail
if they even look suspect.
