  Indeed, that's not configurable in 1.0.x.

I vote for an environment variable, EVOLUTION_MAIL which is to be used
first (or when  ${HOME}/evolution does not exist :-? )

Which is as simple as:

char* evodir=getenv("EVOLUTION_MAIL");

I must say I like this proposal. The evolution/ folder bugs me a bit (but
I'm already happy it's not Ximian/Evolution/ - the M$-way ;) ), it'd be
cool to put it in .evolution (or whatever). This can't be so hard to do...

While I'm at it, well, I'd like to nag about the forced sigdash appending,
and the fixed line wrap at the 72th pos. It's not too much of a problem, I
patch it out before compilation, but well, since I was already nagging... :)

I don't want to give the wrong impression, Evolution runs pretty stable on
my machine, and it looks good - I'm generally very satisfied with it. Keep
up the good work!


PS: Did somebody try mixed use of mailboxes for Evolution and Pine? I'd
like to stop running an imapd for localhost... :)
