Re: [Evolution] Evo playing nice with other MUAs?

It already supports Maildir. How do other mail clients do heirarchial
folder structures? I assume this is what you mean by saying that
Evolution's file system isn't compatable with other mailers. Btw,
Evolution by default uses standard mbox which is readable by any unix

Is anyone at Ximian considering that the current Evolution file
structure for mailboxes makes it very difficult to swap out MUAs.

For example, as I type this I'm 3000 miles away from my machine -
accessing it via SSH.  I'm using mutt at the moment, but when I get
back to the console I could use Balsa without any complications.

Last time I looked at Evo this wasn't possible.  I tried setting up
the Evo mail hierarchy as a bunch of hard/sym links - but it didn't
work.  I don't want to over-react, but it seems that Evo should do
everything it can to play friendly - to do otherwise is very, well,

Also - does Evo (or will it) understand Maildir format mailboxes?
