I'm using evolution from Jan 30 (self compiled) and found some errors

- Mail filtering does not work if the line contain german umlauts

  Jörg Backmann <joerg backmann xyz de>

  Joerg Backmann <joerg backmann xyz de> is handled correct with the

Yea, I think someone else has mentioned this and I'll be looking into

- Send Later causes evolution to loop with 100% CPU, the mail is lost
  after killing evolution.

Odd, this works for me.

- The status box for incoming mail sometimes stops at some percent
  <<100%. All the mail is read, and it works fine after finishing the
  box with ok, but it's very misleading if the indicator is not

- I think, there is a problem with name servers and evolution if the
  name servers are changing. I'm using a laptop and have different
  mail accounts. I'm getting my mail since about 2 months via
  fetchmail, because evolution was not stable enough. But I'm sending
  my mail directly via smtp with evolution. The hostname resolution is
  done via name server which I get via dhcp. So sometimes, when I'm
  changing the network segment and the location where I am, different
  smtp addresses are known, because they are only internal and not
  visible (even from dns) from an outside location. Evolution is not
  able to take this switch, I have to restart it. (BTW, fetchmail also
  doesn't do the job.)

Not much we can do about this, we use the system libraries to resolve
hostnames so if it doesn't work then there's nothing we can do.

- Now, there is a possibility of handling different mail accounts with
  a flag for choosing a default one. That's nice. Is it possible to
  have an additional flag for activating and deactivating a mail
  account temporarily?

No, I'm not sure as of yet if there ever will be.
