Can this be done? If so,how?


Has this been fixed (as promised for soo long) in evo 1.1.1 ?
What exactly is there to fix?

you have no option but to live with the directory/link $HOME/evolution

Other mailers (yes even stone-age-old ns4) can be configured to use a
custom directory.

I am not alone with this.

repeating myself it would be nice to have it fixed like e.g.

    can set that.

  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");
