I switched over to evolution-devel today, but there are a few things
that I have noticed and am finding a little strange.
What I am interested in is whether or not these issues are bugs,
configurable features or now removed.

1) N no longer seems to work as go to Next message

this was removed because it conflicted with a new feature to use
auto-completion for jumping to messages (similar to what Outlook does).

Not sure I like it either, but it's what people wanted.

It's sick and wrong.  Period and comma to move between messages?  Gak!

Please at least let us use Shift-N and P or something else intuitive
(alt-up/down arrow?), or add another dreaded preference, to cut out the
Lookout! bullshit.  Besides, there doesn't seem to be any autocompletion
working, at least not yet...

FWIW, I also think that the message navigation arrows (toolbar,
right/left), should move to the next/previous unread message when Shift
(or??) is held down.  Just a suggestion.  Me, I don't click buttons if I
can help it.

3) Autocompletion doesn't seem to be working, although I can view my
contact list (and use the To: button). Contacts is set as an
Autocomplete folder.

*shrug* worked for me last I tried. At home here I have no contacts in
my addressbook so I can't really test this now.

Address autocompletion doesn't work for me, either (, 6-25
snap); it sometimes pops down a list, but I have to manually cursor down
to select one.  And nicknames are totally broken; I can no longer type a
message to "kat" and hit tab a few times to start the message; I have to
scroll through a bunch of names and addresses that start with "Kat"
before I find it.

In other news, I'm really glad to see message notification partly
implemented, though playing sounds (the only type of notification I
tried) doesn't work at all for me.  No noise, no error or debug message
in the shell.

Is it hard-coded to use ESD or something?  

I at least managed to implement it as a filter, running the shell
command "play file.wav".
