I've been looking at VFolders now, and I fail to see the
difference...what are the advantages/disadvantages (if any) between
vfolders and normal folders??

Thanks for clearing this up. I tried to read the evolution manual but I
just get an error when it tries to open.

Well I don't know what the "official" reasons are for using
folders/vfolders but I personally have millions (well not quite that
many :) folders and filter all messages into the various folders.  Yes I
am a neat freak organized fool.  I have also created some vfolders which
allow me to have messages of a certain category be displayed from
multiple folders.  For instance, I have a folder for seven of the
projects that I work on.  Mail meeting various requirements are
immediately moved to the appropriate folder.  I also have vfolders which
will pull out certain topics (like Work Order Numbers) which displays
every message from those 7 folders which have Work Order Numbers in
them.  I find the vfolders to be very useful in merging multiple folders
without duplicating any messages at all.
